Ladies Football News in Nigeria

The Ireland Ladies Football team will be travelling to the USA for a two-game tour of North America this summer. The tour is part of the Ireland Ladies Football team’s preparation for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

The team will play in two friendlies against the US’s national team in Boston on June 18 and New York on June 22. The Irish team will then take part in the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in August.

“The Ireland Ladies Football team will be competing in the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in August and we have selected the Boston and New York friendlies as part of our preparation for the event,” said Irish FA Head of Women’s Football, Dr. Gillian Cooney.

“We are delighted to be working with the USAFA in the lead up to the Olympics.”

“We have worked with the USAFA before and they have a great reputation for providing top quality coaching and facilities for our players.”

The women’s national team was ranked 15th in the world at the end of the 2014 season.

However, it has been forced to compete in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 qualifiers in the past due to a lack of funding.

This will be the first time that the Irish women’s team has competed at the Olympic Games.

“This is a great opportunity for the team to represent Ireland at the Olympics,” added Dr. Cooney.

“We will be competing in a very strong field in the tournament, including the world number one Germany, France, and Spain.”

“We have selected these friendlies to prepare the team for the tournament and also to provide the USAFA with an opportunity to test out their facilities ahead of the Olympic Games.”

“The Ireland Ladies Football team is working very hard to prepare for Rio and we are looking forward to this summer’s games.”

Saints running back Darren Sproles has joined the New Orleans Saints training camp as a non-roster invitee, head coach Sean Payton announced on Thursday.

Sproles was a third-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2005 NFL Draft and spent six seasons with the Eagles before joining the Kansas City Chiefs for the 2012 season.
