Bayelsa Queens head coach Domo Okara can’t hide his excitement after his team booked a place in the semi-final at the ongoing CAF Women’s Champions League.

The Prosperity Girls started the competition on a losing note, going down to a 2-1 defeat against holders, Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa.

The Nigerian champions however fought back, recording back-to-back victories against TP Mazembe and Wadi Degla.

 “I am happy, really happy with my team,”  Okara told

“Although we controlled the game with this goal in the first half, I was not satisfied with the level of play of the girls. They fell easy. I wanted them to go all the way.”

Bayelsa Queens will now battle hosts AS FAR for a place in the final on Wednesday at the Stade Prince Moulay Abdallah, Rabat.
