WAFU Cup: Falcons to face Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso

WAFU Cup: Falcons to face Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso

19:58 2019

Nigeria, champions of Africa, will battle it out with Burkina Faso, Niger Republic and Mali in the group phase of this year’s WAFU B Women’s tournament.

The 2019 WAFU Cup will take place between May 8-18 in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

The Super Falcons are placed in Group B for the regional championship while Cote d’Ivoire, the host nation, have been drawn against Togo, Senegal and Ghana in Group A.

Next month’s tournament will serve as the last preparatory competition for the Super Falcons before they fly to their final camp in Austria ahead of the 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in France.


Already, the Falcons have participated in tune–up tournaments in China, Cyprus and Spain, and pundits already rate the class of 2019 as the side that have been afforded the best preparation for the World Cup finals by the nation’s football–governing body.

After the WAFU B tournament, the Falcons will spend two weeks at the Avita resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf in Austria putting finishing touches to their preparations, before arriving in France.

The nine–time African champions will play Norway at the Stade Auguste-Delaune in Reims on June 8, before coming against Korea Republic at the Stade des Alpes in Grenoble on June 12, and host nation France at the Roazhon Park in Rennes on June 17.
