Abuja - Super Falcons coach, Edwin Okon has given all
invited foreign based players up till the night of May 16 to report to camp in
Abuja or forget about playing the Africa Women Championship (AWC) qualifier
against Rwanda on May 24.
Okon admitted the girls were finding it difficult to get
their releases from the respective clubs because the AWC is not on FIFA calendar,
but expressed confidence that some of them would make it.
He stated that he has been in constant contact with Desire
Oparanozie and Onome Ebi who have assured him that they would join camp between
May 15 and 16 adding that any player who does not train on the morning of May
17 should forget coming.
"I want the foreign based to train with us for at least
four days before our departure to Rwanda. We must see their fitness and
readiness to play before we pick the team that will make the trip," he
Meanwhile Stella Mbachu has swelled the number of players in
camp. The veteran Rivers Angels winger had stayed away since camp resumed to
write her examinations.
