Comment of Coach IKEDA Futoshi (Nadeshiko Japan)

We are delighted to welcome two great teams, Nigeria Women's National Team and New Zealand Women's National Team, for our international friendlies in October. Nigeria is a dynamic team that continues to show its strength in the Confederation of African Football, while New Zealand is gearing up to host next year's FIFA Women's World Cup™. We have to gain more experience against teams outside of Europe and the United States, in order to prepare for the World Cup. We hope to showcase an exciting match that will bring great joy to many people.
