Meanwhile, Japan will take on Black Queens of Ghana in a friendly game billed for Saturday, July 13, in Kanazawa, Japan.

The friendly is part of Japan’s preparation for the upcoming summer games.

This will be the second time the Super Falcons and Japan would square off at the Olympic games.

In their first encounter in the group stage at the Athens 2004 Olympics games, a Vera Okolo strike secured a 1-0 win for the nine-time African champions.

However, the last three meetings between Japan and the Super Falcons have all been in friendly games which all ended same scoreline, 2-0, in favour of the Asian team.

    Is Nigeria still going to participate in the female football event of the Paris Olympics at all….?!

    Is Nigeria serious about the female Olympic football otherwise what is the preparation schedule of Super Falcons?.. we don’t want any disgrace at the Olympics, NFF take note !!

      Bro, you clearly don’t know these people. Don’t be surprised if the team doesn’t play a single preparatory match or camp anywhere before the games commence. In fact, invited players might just fly directly to the tournament from their bases. These guys are terrible, and Gusau, especially, is a disaster for Nigerian football. Posterity will not smile on anyone who ensured he became NFF president. He’s painfully slow in decision-making, and when he finally does make a decision, it’s as bad as it gets.

      And if the team fails to perform, they’ll just sack the coach, and we, the fans, will turn on the players for not giving their best. It’s so, so bad.

  • The preparation of Olympics is not the duty of nff but that of the NOC with sports ministry, NOC will only seek advice/assistance from nff if need be. Worst case scenario two or three nff members will be asked to join the NOC if need be.
    NOC will not allow nff to fully take responsibility, this is an olympics event.
    Though I will not be surprised if nff is planning to hijack the show, but the NOC will fight back, money involved is too good and small to share around.

      Kim…even if it is the Supreme Court or EFCC that is responsible for whatever, why aren’t we even in camp while our opponents have already announced their final list for the tournament? Is that not nauseating enough…?? Yet all that is dominating the news is banning Osimhen.

  • @Drey, that is a why I mentioned that those cronnies (NOC, NFF and sports ministry) are there for the money, they are not interested in a successful outing, once the budget was approved, they really don’t care.
    If you recollect, the last Olympics, Blessing took the AFN to the cleaners, accusing them of fighting over sports kits and sponsorship money meant for athletics from NIKE, they even had two afn presidents then.
    That is how low those criminals can be.
