Nigeria’s Super Falcons
The Nigeria Football Federation and the South African Football Association have agreed on two international friendly matches between their senior women teams for the month of June.
In a letter to the Nigeria Football Federation on Thursday, the South African Football Association confirmed that their Senior Women’s Team, Banyana Banyana, will take on the Super Falcons in the first leg in South Africa on Saturday 2, June with the second leg taking place in Nigeria on June 23.
“We are delighted to announce that the two games have been confirmed, as it would be good knock-around for our girls. We believe the Super Falcons will overcome the challenge of Zimbabwe to go and defend their African title in Equatorial Guinea in November.
“Apart from these two matches with the Banyana Banyana, one of the strongest women teams in Africa, the NFF is also working hard to get more games for the Falcons in order to make them much better,” said NFF General Secretary, Musa Amadu.
The NFF is also at the verge of consummating other friendlies and invitational tournaments for all categories of national teams, including the U-15 National Boys’ Team, which is set for an Eight-nation Invitational Tournament in Mexico in June.
While the U-20 Men’s Team, Flying Eagles, will defend their title at the Cape Town Invitational Tournament in Cape Town, South Africa in May, the Super Eagles will also play a friendly match against the Panthers of Gabon towards the end of May, after their match against
Peru in Lima on May 21.
