Nigeria’s Super Falcons have resumed training after a 3-0 defeat to Norway in their opening game at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
On Monday, the Super Falcons team trained at the Stade Eugène Thenard on the Avenue du General de Charles Gaulle ahead of the clash against Korea.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup game will be played at the Stade des Alpes as from 3pm (same time as in Nigeria) on Wednesday.
Korea’s margin of defeat by France, who thumped them 4-0 at the Parc des Princes in Paris in the championship opening match, means Nigeria is third in the pool, and being a 24 –team tournament, the African champions will be in good stead to reach the Round of 16 if they brush the Koreans aside on Wednesday and hold France to a stalemate in Rennes on 17th June.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, who watched the defeat by Norway in Reims on Saturday alongside 2nd Vice President Shehu Dikko, General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi and Executive Committee member Aisha Falode, charged the Falcons to overcome the loss to the Scandinavians and plot a surefire strategy that will extract the three points from the Asians on Wednesday.
