Super Falcons: Managerless Nigerian women to play France on April 14: Worldlywap News

Super Falcons

This will be Super Falcons' first game since they won the 2016 AWCON in Cameroon.

Although without a coach, the Super Falcons of Nigeria will face France in a friendly game on Saturday, April 14.

The Super Falcons of Nigeria have been without a coach since Florence Omagbemi left the role in early 2017.

The players have not come together since they won the 2016 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Cameroon.

 

Their first game since December 2016 would a friendly against France which the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have confirmed.

"We have signed a contract for a friendly match with the women's national team of France for 4th April 2018 in Paris," NFF president Amaju Pinnick said in a statement.

Search for manager continues

The NFF are also close to appointing a new manager for the Super Eagles after US coach Randy Waldrum turned down the opportunity to take over the team.

"It is unfortunate that the coach (Waldrum) we had contacted and approved for the Super Falcons' job opted for something else before the contract was signed, but that is water under the bridge and we have moved on," Pinnick further said.

 

"In a few weeks, we will unveil a highly qualified Coach for the team and we will then take it from there."

The new Super Falcons coach will be tasked with taking the team to the 2018 WAFU Women’s Cup in Ivory Coast from February 10 -24.

The Super Falcons will also play the qualifiers for the 2018 AWCON and the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
