10 April 2014, 17:14Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Super Falcons technical crew have continued in their gradual process of elimination by substitution when seven players were dropped for not measuring up to what is expected of them.

The seven players dropped are midfielders Joy Anthony Ajah, Lilian Tule, Edith Eduviere, Elizebeth Zirike, Chinyere Igboamalu, Humble Nelson and Abosede Torila.

Head coach Edwin Okon said there was no time to waste hence the need to quickly identify tournament materials.

"We have not asked seven of you to leave us because you are bad players. We are running against time now so the need to prone the team down to sizeable number and concentrate on those who are giving us what we want at the moment"

"Please as you leave us continue to pray for the team because you all are part of this team" Okon told the girls.

Indications have also emerged that more players who do not measure up will be asked to leave by next week.
