Nigeria's Women's World Cup-bound Super Falcons will meet Japan, Korea and China as part of their preparations for the championships according to Nigerian Football Association Secretary General, Bolaji Ojo-Oba.

"When I was in China for the draws for the Women's World Cup, many top football nations requested for friendly matches with our team, the Super Falcons. Japan, Korea and even host nation, China requested to play friendlies against us prior to the kick off of the championship. We are still working on the modalities and as soon as we are through with the logistics, we will release the details to the press," Ojo-Oba told media.

He also disclosed that all other arrangements including hotel accommodation have been concluded. "We have arranged for good accommodation for our Super Falcons. They will stay in the 9th floor in a hotel in Chendu while they play there. Good training pitch is also there for training for the girls," Ojo-Oba revealed.
