By Johnny Edward: The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President Amaju Pinnick has confirmed that the women’s senior national team the Super Falcons will play their counterparts from France in an international friendly in 2018, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The game will be played in Paris on the 4th of April, 2018.
Pinnick also rued Randy Waldrum’s rejection of the Super Falcons’ job in a media statement made available to Completesportsnigeria.com by the NFF, promising a new coach for the team.
“It is unfortunate that the coach 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. In a few weeks, we will unveil a highly qualified coach for the team and we will then take it from there,” Pinnick told thenff.com.
“Already, we have signed a contract for a friendly match with the women’s national team of France for 4th April 2018 in Paris. We are also mindful of the ongoing campaigns of the Falconets and Flamingoes for World Cup tickets and we will continue to give them maximum support.”
The Super Falcons did not play a single match in 2017 but they will defend their Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title next in Ghana from the 17th of November to the 1st of December 2018.
