The nine-time African champions are set to take on reigning Olympic champions Canada in a training match in Sevilla on Wednesday, 17th July.

The super falcons are looking for a better showing at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament as their last was in Athens 20 years ago, where the Super Falcons finished in 6th place after exiting the tournament in the quarter-finals.
