The friendly is part of the Super Falcons preparations ahead of the qualifiers for this year’s Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana.

The Falcons, who got a bye into the play-off round, will face the winner of Burkina Faso and Gambia first round tie.

“We are ready Nigeria vs France. God do what only you can do,” the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup star wrote on Twitter.

The last time the Falcons met the French women’s senior national team was in the group stage of the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany which the European country won 1-0.

    Please mind your language. We should not be describing women playing football for the country in such rather insulting words. They’re not there for a beauty contest.

     
  • Super Falcons defender Ngozi Ebere will be hoping to taste action when her team Arna-Bjørnar file out against SK Trondheims-Ørn in the Norwegian women’s league this afternoon.

    Good luck to her and all our ladies out there.

     
    • I have just come round to confirm that Super Falcons defender Ngozi Ebere tasted her first action in Norwegian football yesterday as her club played out a 0:0 draw against SK Trondheims-Ørn away.

      Ngozi, spotting jersey number 2, was the only African on display for both sides. The world cup hopeful lasted 90 minutes.

      Ngozi signed for the Scandinavian club earlier this year. On part of her motivation for going to the cold country, the 27 year old told a Norwegian newspaper that:”He (Coach Thomas Dennerby) told me that the Norwegian league was good and that they play fast football. I wanted a new challenge, and so I ended up here.

      I haven’t seen so much, but it’s a beautiful city. And I will probably get used to the cold!” (Source: http://www.ba.no/sport/fotball/arna-bjornar/arna-bjornars-nykommer-skal-mote-nye-venninner-i-vm/s/5-8-1012990#am-commentArea).

      Ngozi will be expected to make Nigeria’s squad to this summer’s World Cup where they will face Norway. I am hoping that (just like Mutiu Adepoju in France 98 against Spain) Ngozi will bite the fingers that feed her by scoring against Norway at the world cup!

       
      • It’s Saturday 30th of March for Ngozi’s club next game against Lyn in an away day fixture.

        I only hope Ngozi did enough yesterday to retain her place over next weekend.

        More of our ladies are playing top flight football leading to the world cup in June.

        Nice one.

         
  • Will playing in Norway (see my posts above) give Ngozi an upper hand when Nigeria play the Scandinavian country at the World Cup in June?

    The Super Falcons defender said :” It will be very fun. Maybe I will meet some of my new team friends (that a now play with in Norway)!” 🙂

    Currently, 2 Super Falcons footballers play professionally in Norway: Ngozi and Ajibade Rasheedat.

    Six other Super Falcons play in another neighbouring Scandinavian state (Sweden). These are: O. Ohale, F. Ikidi, J. Chukwunonyen, R. Chukwuelu, N Okobi, H. Ayinde.

    Some of these players that I have been tracking have been active for their clubs.

    Most – if not all – of them are vastly experienced footballers in club and international football across all levels.

    I am hoping that their experience will stand Nigeria in good stead at the World Cup.
