Nigeria’s Super Falcons are a dominant force on the African continent, yet despite a clear consistency, the team has only once made it past the group stage in world competition. This summer, the squad will look to better 1999’s quarterfinal performance and stamp some Naija spirit across the pitches of France.
Like the Super Eagles in 2018, Nigeria’s women will wear a kit that’s become an instant classic. The home kit pays subtle homage to Nigeria’s ’94 shirt (worn by Nigeria’s first men’s team to qualify — the Super Falcons have qualified for every tournament since 1991) with its eagle wing-inspired black-and-white sleeve and green torso. Those elements are supercharged through an abstracted feather pattern and hyper colors that extend a power capable of turning heads on and off pitch.
“It is with great pride that I wear the Super Falcons’ jersey to represent my country this summer,” says striker Asisat Oshoala. “The jersey has become synonymous with what Nigeria represents: vibrancy, rich culture, ‘drip’ attitude and potential. I hope that every African girl watching me on the field would find the motivation and support they need to actualize their dreams, be it in football or sport in general.”
The away kit is a refined vision of a classic Nigeria full-green strip.
Arsenal Goalkeeper, David Ospina collapses during Napoli’s match
Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina on Sunday collapsed during Napoli’s Serie A match against Udinese, and he was taken to hospital afterwards.
The Colombian, on a season-long loan at Napoli, sustained a blow to the head when he collided with Ignacio Pussetto early in the match.
He then fell to the ground shortly before the break after Udinese levelled at 2-2 having been 2-0 down.
The 30-year-old received treatment before he was brought off the field.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti said: “Fortunately it’s nothing serious, he’s conscious. They did a CAT scan that is negative.”
Ospina signed for the Gunners in July 2014 but has only made 27 league appearances for the Premier League side.
He joined Napoli on a season-long loan deal in August 2018.
