Reports making the rounds in some social media platforms indicate that the Super Falcons will take on Lions FC, a local Australian women’s football club in a friendly in Brisbane, Australia on Saturday.
The encounter is slated for the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre. It remains to be seen whether the NFF will deem it necessary to stream it live.
I am yet to see this game being formally announced in any official NFF media platforms. If it proves to be accurate, it is the first friendly arranged for the Super Falcons since the team started preparations for 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand last week.
The friendly will afford head coach Randy Waldrum to perfect his tactics and formation ahead of the competition. Up until now, the Super Falcons'have been going through physical training sessions assiduously.
We are drawn in Group B with Olympic champions, Canada, co-hosts Australia and debutants Republic of Ireland.
Nigeria are dark horses in the group. As underdogs, they are hoping to subvert this status by using it as their trump card with which to spring up seismic surprises.
