Falcon coach gives foreign pros deadline to join camp

14 May 2014, 16:29Israel Ojoko

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 stated.

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.
