After being walloped 8-0 in a recent friendly match with world champions, Germany, the Super Falcons have been handed another opportunity to redeem their battered image. The Falcons have been drawn in the same group with Germany for next’ year’s World Cup, which runs through June 26-July 27 2011 in four cities in Germany.
Drawn in Group A, the Falcons will also have a date with Canada and France in the group phase of the female Mundial.
The defeat to Germany is the worst to be inflicted upon the Super Falcons by any side since their equally embarrassing 8-0 defeat to Norway at the 1995 FIFA Women’s World Cup held in Sweden.
The Super Falcons who recently regained their African title in South Africa after defeating Equatorial Guinea 4-2 in the finals have been to every female World Cup.
