 Falconets To Face Confluence Queens In U-20 WWC Friendly

Nigeria's Falconets will take on Nigeria Women League side Confluence Queens of Kogi State in a friendly game in Lokoja on Wednesday.

This was revealed on Tuesday by the Nigeria Football Federation on their official website.


The friendly game is being put together as part of the Falconets preparations ahead of next month's FIFA U20 Women's World Cup in Papua New Guinea.

Falconets had over the weekend defeated Abees Golden Academy, a male football side 4-3 in a friendly match at the FIFA Goal Project Pitch in Abuja.

Speaking on the choice of playing Confluence Queens, Falconets coach Peter Dedevbo said that his technical crew, after much consideration,
picked Confluence Queens because of the club’s proximity to Abuja, while stressing the importance of the friendly.

"Confluence Queens are the closest female team to us. It is easy for us to drive down to Lokoja, play them and return back in Abuja," Dedevbo said.

"The match is part of the continuous process to put the team into shape. Don't forget that we have less than three weeks to the commencement of the World Cup, so we need as many quality friendlies as we can lay our hands on.”

The Falconets, finalists at the 2014 U-20 World Cup in Canada, are in Group B of this year's edition alongside Spain, Canada and Japan.
