Falconets coach calls up 36 for World Cup qualifier

22 June 2015, 11:26

Abuja - Coach of Nigeria’s U20 women’s football team, the Falconets, Peter Dedevbo has invited 36 players to camp as he kick-starts the Falconets’ preparation for next month’s 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifying fixture against Liberia.

Each of the 36 girls are expected to report at the team’s Abuja camp on Tuesday, 23rd June, 2015 with training kit, medical certificate of fitness and international passport.

Dedevbo, who led the Falconets to the final of the last edition of the FIFA World Cup in Canada last year, recalled goalkeeper Sandra Chiichii (inexplicably dropped from the Super Falcons’ final team to the FIFA World Cup in Canada), as well as midfielder Osarenoma Igbinovia and striker Chinwendu Ihezuo.
