The Super Falcons of Nigeria will face the US, Jamaica, and Portugal women national teams in a four-nation invitational tournament in Texas.

The competition will serve as a build-up for the nine-time African champion ahead of the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nation (AWCON) qualifiers.

The four-nation tournament which is presented by AT&T 5G, will be held from June 10-16, 2021 in Houston and Austin, Texas in the United States.

The competition will see the Super Falcons clash with their Jamaican counterparts in Houston on June 10 before they take on Portugal three days later at the same BBVA Stadium.

The Randy Waldrum girls will then square it out with the four-time World Cup and Olympics champions at the Q2 Stadium in Austin on the last day of the completion.

The match against Nigeria will mark the first time the USA has ever faced the Super Falcons outside of a world championship and will be just the third-ever friendly against an African country — with the previous two coming against South Africa.

Falcons emerged champion at the Turkish Women’s Cup tournament in February after thrashing Equatorial Guinea 9-0.
