Falcons, Banyana to clash in June

Super Falcons of Nigeria

The Nigeria Football Federation and the South African Football Association have agreed on two international friendly matches between their senior women’s teams in June.

In a letter to the NFF on Thursday, the SAFA confirmed that the Banyana Banyana, will take on the Super Falcons in the first leg in South Africa on June 2 while the return leg fixture will take place in Nigeria on June 23.

NFF General Secretary, Musa Amadu, said, “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 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, the NFF is also working hard to get more games for the Falcons in order to make them better.”

The NFF is also at the verge of concluding negotiations on other friendlies and invitational tournaments for the other national teams, including the U-15 boys’ team, which are set for an eight-nation invitational tournament in Mexico in June.
