Super Falcons Land In America For Summer Series

Nine-time African champions Nigeria have arrived in the United States of America for this year’s Summer Series – a 4-Nation Tournament also involving hosts USA, Jamaica, and Portugal’s ‘A’ Women Teams.

A contingent of Nigeria –based technical crew and nine home-based professionals flew aboard a Delta Airlines’ flight on the long haul from Lagos to Atlanta and arrived in the capital of the State of Georgia on Tuesday morning. They were aboard another flight from Atlanta to Houston, in the State of Texas, hours after.

According to a release by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Communications Department, the team’s Head Coach, Randy Waldrum, an American, and a number of overseas –based players are expected to join up with the squad in Houston ahead of Nigeria’s first match of the series against Jamaica at the BBVA Stadium on Thursday.

Three days later, the Falcons, one of only seven teams to have featured in every edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals since the competition was launched 30 years ago, will tackle Portugal at the same BBVA.

Their last match is against the USA squad, four-time winners of the FIFA World Cup and four-time winners of the Olympic football gold, at the Q2 Stadium on 16th June.

Matches will be played at the BBVA Stadium in Houston and the brand-new, $240million Q2 Stadium in Austin built by the newest club in the Major League Soccer, Austin FC. Both cities are in the State of Texas and the clash between the Super Falcons and the US Women A team will be the first-ever football match at the state-of-the-art Q2.

The USA is the only one of the four teams in the Summer Series that will compete in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. The match against Nigeria will mark the first time the USA has ever faced the Super Falcons outside of a world championship and it will be just the third-ever friendly against an African country for the Americans, with the previous two coming against South Africa.

    Poor planning and preparation always spoiling everything in Nigeria.

    Imagine we’re having a Match against Jamaica on Thursday and we’re yet to assemble our players and Coach in camp as at Tuesday. The Jamaican ladies have played like 3 friendlies now I can confirm and here we are. I just hope USA won’t spell the name of every one of them when they meet them.
