Super Falcons to return Saturday after poor show

18 June 2015, 17:22Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Falcons will return to Nigeria on Saturday after their poor performance at the FIFA Women’s World Cup that saw them crash out in the group stage.

The African champions managed a 3-3 draw against Sweden in their opening game, and then lost 2-0 to Australia before suffering another defeat - 1-0 to USA.

On arrival, the team is likely to get the most unceremonious reception, just like their Flying Eagles counterpart who crashed out of the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand in the Round of 16 following a 1-0 loss to Germany.

The team will depart Vancouver on Thursday for London aboard a British Airways flight, and will in London connect to Abuja, to arrive in the early hours of Saturday.

Meanwhile, Francisca Ordega was the first to leave for her base in the US alongside Courtney Dike. Captain Evelyn Nwabuoku also departed for Kazakhstan while Ini-Abasi Umotong, who plays for Pompey Ladies FC in the UK, will bid team-mates farewell when the team arrives in London. Team Psychologist, Kasia Muoto, has also left for her base in the United States.

Falcons finished bottom of Group D with one point after a draw with Sweden and losses to Australia and USA.
