Super Falcons to face Canada in a friendly double-header
The Super Falcons will face Olympic Gold medalists, the Women's National Team of Canada in two international friendlies, as part of the Canada Women's National Team Celebration Tour.
On Friday, April 8 at BC Place in Vancouver, and on Monday, April 11 at Langford's Starlight Stadium on Victoria Island, the two-match west coast series will be played.
"We look forward to reconnecting with our Canadian fans on the west coast for these two home matches," said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team Head Coach.
"These two matches against Nigeria in Vancouver and Langford will also provide us with great experience as we continue to prepare for this summer's qualifiers to both the FIFA World Cup and Olympic Games."
Canada's most recent match in British Columbia, prior to the global epidemic, was a 1:1 draw with the United States in November 2017.
The Super Falcons like the Canadians, are preparing for the summer qualifications for the FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia & New Zealand 2023.
