Nnadozie, Okeke, headline Falconets’ list of 25 players
Falconets Coach Christopher Danjuma has released a 25-woman provisional list to represent Nigeria in the All African games that is scheduled to hold in Rabat, Morocco later in August.
Nigeria head Group B and will trade tackles with Cameroon, South Africa and Zambia.
Organizers have reiterated that this year’s women football event will be contested by players under the age of 20.
This means Nigeria’s team will be composed of the U20 girls, also known as Falconets.
The list released by Coach Danjuma is headlined by FIFA World Cup stars Chidinma Okeke and Goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie.
Some months ago, CAF announced that the teams that featured at the 11th Women Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana in November/December 2018 would be the same teams to contest the gold medal of the football event of the African Games.
The 12th African Games will hold between late August and early September this year.
