Super Falcons camp for Lagos six-nation friendly opens September 13

8. Captain Asisat Oshoala has said she is hugely proud of the Super Falcons after they fought back to draw 3-3 with Portugal in continuation of the Summer Series in Texas, USA.

Those expecting the Super Falcons camp to open early for the forthcoming Lagos Six-Nation Invitational Friendly Matches will have to wait longer as the Nigeria camp will open on Monday, September 13, 2021.

Prompt News exclusively gathered that Nigeria’s camp for the Lagos Invitational Friendlies will open on September 13 when the bulk of the “foreign legion” invited for the two games will arrive at camp.

This is even as many invited overseas-based Falcons will not be released by their clubs earlier than Monday, September 13 when the 2021 FIFA Women’s Window for the month of September will commence.

Recall that Super Falcons’ Head Coach, Randy Waldrum has named a 23-woman provisional list for the Lagos Six-Nation Invitational football fiesta with only four players plying their trade locally.

But Prompt News can confirm that almost all the 19 overseas-based players are tied with club football till Sunday, September 12, leaving the Super Falcons coaches with no players to train if the team opens camp before Monday, September 13.

Further investigations revealed that five Sweden-based Falcons defenders, Glory Ogbonna (Umea FC) and Faith Ikidi (Pitea DFF); midfielders, Ngozi Okobi-Okeoghene (Eskilstuna United) and Joy Bokiri (AIK FC) as well as striker Uchenna Kanu

(Linkopings FC), who has scored 7 goals this season, will not be released till after their club matches on Sunday, September 12.
