Priestman confessed that the Super Falcons will be a tough nut to crack for her side.

“They are not an easy team to play, out of that pot, they are probably the team you didn’t want,”Priestman said after the draw ceremony.

“I won’t be underestimating them. However, experience is on our side and well use that”, she said.

The Falcons were on tour of Canada six months ago, where they played two matches against the North Americans , losing one narrowly and drawing the other.
