NFF plans two friendlies for Super Falcons
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has disclosed that it is working to organise two international friendlies for the Super Falcons.
Amaju Pinnick, NFF President disclosed this during a working visit to the new secretariat of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) at the old NFF’s Glass House in Abuja.
Pinnick said the federation was in talks with the unnamed countries for the matches, while the NFF also intends to utilise every FIFA window to organise matches for the national female team.
He also added that the Glass House was in touch with some Nigerian-born players who have written and offered to shift international allegiance to the Super Falcons.
Pinnick lauded the Chairperson of the Women’s League, Aisha Falode, as a priceless asset with a lot of focus, creativity, ingenuity in rebuilding and redirecting the women’s game in Nigeria.
In her, Falode said that the women’ football in Africa was pioneered in Nigeria, describing the female league as paramount to the growth of football in the country and development of the national team.
“We are extremely and thoroughly grateful to the NFF President and General Secretary for bequeathing to us this edifice to make this our home. That is why I invited them to come and give us their blessings so that this place will continue to be the house of gold for women football and that the great achievements we have ahead of us will be catalyzed from this building,” Falode said.
She appealed to the NFF to support and enable Nigeria participate in the maiden edition CAF Champions League for women in 2021 and encourage teams in the NWFL to prepare for the event by playing a full season.
