Sao Tome and Principe have dropped out of the competition for the 2024 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.
Later this month, Sao Tome and Principe was supposed to play the Super Falcons in a first-round qualifying match.
It was discovered that the nation’s football administrators had already informed the Confederation of African Football (CAF) of their choice.
Super Falcons, nine-time winners, have already qualified for the second round without kicking a ball.
The victor of the contest between Cape Verde and Liberia will play the Nigerian girls in the second round.
The competition’s winner will represent their country at the Morocco-hosted WAFCON in 2024.
At the previous competition, which was also held by Morocco, the Super Falcons came in fourth.
