Super Falcons coach reassures dropped players

06 April 2016, 11:43Israel Ojoko

Dakar - Super Falcons interim coach Florence Omagbemi has reassured players that did not make the trip to Dakar for the African Women’s Championship qualifier against Senegal, that they will still get a chance to represent Nigeria.

Only 18 players made the trip to Senegal on Tuesday for the battle against the Terenga Lioness of Senegal slated for Friday, 8th April in Dakar.

"It is not easy for me to drop anyone for this game. I wish I could go to Dakar with all the players but I cannot. We have to keep working together to achieve our common goal, which is winning. We are going to Senegal to win."

She told the players who were dropped: "Not going to Senegal does not mean that you are not part of the team. You may not be part of the team going to Dakar now but you will still have the opportunity of fighting for a place in the team for the return leg next week.

"Keep working hard till we return from Dakar, and support your team mates going to Senegal with prayers for the team to be successful. The team's success means everyone’s success,” Omagbemi concluded.

The team will later on Wednesday have its first training at the Stade Demba Diop in Dakar.
