The Nigeria Football Federation has finalized plans to provide Super Falcons with what could turn out to be their best -ever preparation for the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals.
The Super Falcons, who were overwhelmingly voted as the Women National Team of Year 2018 in Africa at the AITEO-CAF African Football Awards in Senegal on Tuesday, are determined to adequately prepare and be competitive at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup – a championship in which they have only reached the quarterfinals once before, 20 years ago.
Already, the NFF has announced that the African champions will have their final camping programme at the same Avita Hotel and Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf in Austria, where the Super Eagles stayed before flying to Russia to participate in last year’s global tournament.
Jamaica, who play Australia, Italy and Brazil in Group C, have also written to the NFF expressing interest in playing the Super Falcons.
The Women World Cup draw sees Nigeria opening their account in France against Norway, at the 21,000 -capacity Stade Auguste Delaune in Reims on 8th June, before matches against Korea Republic in Grenoble on 12th June and against hosts France in Rennes on 17th June.
The 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup finals will kick off on June 7th – July 7th 2019, with France up against Korea Republic in the opening match at the Parc des Princes in Paris.
