Super Falcons

The Super Falcons are set to consolidate when they take on Senegal’s Teranga Lionesses in 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations second qualifying match at the Abuja National Stadium today.

Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in Dakar last Friday.

The Super Falcons boast a fearsome strike-force of Asisat Oshoala, Desire Oparanozie, Francisca Ordega and Chioma Wogu, with nimble-footed midfielder Ngozi Okobi also always a threat.

NFF confirmed the arrival of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) appointed match officials yesterday.

Zalikatou Traore Diallo from Guinea is the match commissioner with Veronique Ike Ngomba from Congo as referee. Another Congolese, Julie Kyabuta Kanyembo will be the first assistant while Sacle Marthe Sakobo is the second assistant referee.

CAF has replaced Gabonese official Patricia Obiang Obone, who was slated to be the reserve referee, but could not make it. CAF has replaced her with Nigerian official Foluso Ajayi.

NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi personally welcomed the officials to the match coordination meeting at the NFF Secretariat in Abuja yesterday afternoon, assisted by the Acting Director of Competitions, Mr. Bola Oyeyode and the Assistant Director (Communications), Mr. Ademola Olajire.
