Falcons Draw With Academy Team In Friendly

By Adebayo Williams

Super Falcons were held to a 2-2 draw by Abees Aademy in Abuja in a friendly match on Wednesday. The Florence Omagbemi-tutored side came back from two gaols to draw with their male opponents. Goals from Sunday Uchechi and Francisa Ordega drew the side level.  The African representatives had suffered a 4-2 defeat to Eaglesnet Academy before a 1-0 win over the Falconets in their two opening test match games.

They will continue their preparations for this month’s Africa Women’s Cup of Nations when they next face Capital City Doves on Saturday. Omagbemi is expected to submit her final 21-woman squad in coming days as she is hoping to defend the African women title they won in Namibia in 2014.
