Canada Women’s National team coach, Bev Priestman, is eagerly anticipating their upcoming fixture against the Super Falcons in the Women’s World Cup. Despite concerns raised by the Super Falcons’ coach about the Nigeria Football Federation’s handling of preparations for the tournament, Priestman remains optimistic.
Priestman, formerly a university lecturer and now the coach of Canada’s women’s national team, expressed her team’s readiness to face any challenges as they kick off their World Cup campaign later this month. She stated, “Our team has been working so hard to prepare for the World Cup, and we are ready to give our best and make our fans happy.”
As the reigning Women’s Football Olympic Champions, Canada is considered one of the favorites to reach the latter stages of the competition and potentially secure the cup. They arrived in Australia on Wednesday to ensure the players and staff are properly prepared, acclimatized to the weather, and familiarized with life in Australia.
Meanwhile, the Super Falcons, nine-time African Champions, will also be flying to Australia on Sunday for their own preparations. Despite recent media controversies, they aim to put on a performance that will make the country proud.
The anticipation is high as both teams gear up for their crucial opening group fixture. Football fans around the world eagerly await the clash between Canada and the Super Falcons, as the Women’s World Cup promises to deliver exciting matches and showcase the talent of female footballers on the global stage.
