BREAKING NEWS: Super Falcons return to training ahead of England clash

Super Falcons returned to training on Thursday ahead of their round of 16 clash against the Lionesses of England.

The Randy Waldrum-led side had a two-day break for ‘sightseeing’ in Brisbane as part of their recovery routine following a goalless draw against the Republic of Ireland on Monday.

The draw ensured that nine-time African champions became the first African team to qualify for the round of 16 as they finished runners-up in Group B of the competition.

Falcons avoided defeat in all three group-stage matches for the first time in history, with a win and two draws.

Their attention are now fixed on the game against England which is expected to be a tough test for the Africans who will be aiming to cause an upset and advance to the quarter-final.

The game is slated for Monday, August 7th, 2023 at 8.30 am in Brisbane, Australia.
