Super Falcons have been lined up for two friendlies against the United States Women’s National Team in September
The Nigerians, currently aiming to win the African championship for a historic 10th time will face the United States in a two-match tour later in the year.
The Yankees like the Nigerians are also competing in their continental tournament and fancy Nigeria’s opposition ahead of the games.
United States coach, Vlatko Andonovski said he’s delighted with the venue and the opposition as Nigeria have players that can cause them different grades of problems.

“First, I’m just excited to play two matches against Nigeria. They have some very talented players who will present a lot of different problems for us to solve on both sides of the ball, ” Andonovski said according to US Soccer.
“Secondly, of course we’re looking forward to bringing the team back to one of the best soccer cities and best soccer stadiums in the United States in Kansas City, as well as getting to play our first game at Audi Field, which I’ve visited several times for NWSL games and is also a fantastic venue for our team to play in front of our home fans.”
