The Super Falcons are scheduled to face Canada in a pair of exhibition games scheduled for April.

Friendly matches were announced in a declaration Wednesday on the Canadian Football Association website.

The statement describes the match as a “West Coast Series” which would see the Tokyo Olympics gold medalists host the African champions on April 8 at BC Place in Vancouver.

The duo will also meet on April 11 at Starlight Stadium in Langford on Vancouver Island.

Matches come on the heels of Falcons preparing for 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (AWCON) billed from July 2 to July 23 in Morocco.

Canada is also preparing for the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Championship, which serves as both a qualification route for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 and the Paris Olympics 2024.

“Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will face Nigeria in two international matches as the Women’s National Team Celebration Tour travels to British Columbia for the upcoming April window of the FIFA International Match Calendar. The two-game West Coast series will begin Friday, April 8 at BC Place in Vancouver and continue Monday, April 11 at Langford’s Starlight Stadium on Vancouver Island,” the statement read.

“The first game in Vancouver also gives Canada Soccer the opportunity to celebrate Christine Sinclair’s world record international goals in front of her home crowd. This celebration was originally scheduled for April 2020 but postponed due to the global pandemic. Since breaking the record in January 2020, the Canadian captain from Burnaby, British Columbia, has led Canada to an Olympic gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in August 2021.

“The two-game series will also mark farewell to Stéphanie Labbé, who will end her professional and international career as one of the best goalkeepers in the world. The Olympic gold medalist, who finished second in voting for FIFA’s Best Women’s Goalkeeper in 2020-21, has already played her last club games at Paris Saint-Germain FC and will now wear the maple leaf of Canada for a final series at home.”

The last time the two teams met in a friendly match was in 2019, when Canada won 2-1.

Mexico

The Mexico national team could be very confident of securing their qualification for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 as they could soon announce two farewell matches in the United States against world-class rivals before visiting in the Middle East next November.

The road to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 has even more stops before it ends, and Mexico national team should focus on his next games as his ticket to the Middle East is not yet certain. However, El Tri’s confidence speaks louder than the whispering voices of her current poor form: she may have already scheduled two farewell matches against Top rivals in United States before leaving for Qatar.

Since 2002, Sorting has worked with Soccer United Marketing (SUM), which guarantees Tata Martinothe team earns two million dollars for each friendly game in which it participates United States. The contract specifies that Mexico must organize at least 5 matches per year in the American fields: it is an expected gain of 10 million dollars.

In 2021, the Mexico national team has faced 6 friendlies in the United States, against Iceland, Honduras, Panama, Nigeria, Ecuador and Chile, none of them are clearly a first-class adversary. This is precisely what fans and the Mexican media constantly claim: high-level rivals are needed to increase the skills of their team.

The two world-class opponents Mexico are expected to face before heading to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

According to the Mexican newspaper estothere could be good news for both Sorting fans, those eager to see their team against better rivals, and those who live across the border in the United States, as Mexico’s two friendlies against top national teams, already qualified for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 are to be announced soon.

Mexico’s likely rivals are the five-time World Cup champion Braziland two-time World Cup winners Argentina. These friendlies could probably take place in San Francisco, the one against the Canarinhaand Los Angeles, the one against the Albiceleste.

The report that leaked these likely Mexico national team matches says they could be staged as farewell matches before Tata Martino’s team is traveling to the Middle East in November. This proves the confidence of the Mexican Football Federation in their team’s qualification for Qatar 2022.

What does the Mexico national team need to secure their place in the next FIFA World Cup?

The Concacaf qualifying rankings have Canada leading with 25 points, followed by the United States and Mexico, both with 21 points. The North American giants currently own the direct tickets to Qatar 2022. Panamafourth with 17 points, is expected to face Inter-confederation play-off against one Oceania team to claim one of the very last places at the next FIFA World Cup.

Tata Martino’s boys need to win 6 of the next 9 points in the Qualifiers to secure their place at Qatar 2022. This equation is conditioned by Panama and Rating Ricardoresults of: if the latter both lose their next match, a Mexican victory is enough to cross the bridge to the Middle East.

El SortingThe match schedule is as follows: it will be the host team against the United States in a pride match to fight for the top spots in the standings; then he has to visit the worst team in the Qualifier, Hondurasand finally he will receive El Salvador still at home.
