The Super Falcons of Nigeria recorded a 2-2 draw against Canada in their second friendly, in the early hours of Tuesday, April 12, at the Starlight Stadium, Langford.

Super Falcons lost the first friendly 2-0 to Canada in Vancouver and were looking forward to a better performance in the second game.

The Super Falcons went ahead in the fifth minute when Ifeoma Onumonu converted a ball with a back heel at the near post.

Canada started the second half with urgency and a mistake at the back by Super Falcons captain Onome Ebi resulted in the equalizer.


Atletico Madrid forward Rasheedat Ajibade scored a fantastic goal for the Falcons in the second half.

Down with a goal in front of their home fans, Canada began to pile pressure on the Super Falcons defense.

Despite being unable to get the win, the two games against Canada were a huge test for the Super Falcons as they continue their preparation for the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations -AWCON- scheduled to take place in July 2022.
