Oshoala left out as Super Falcons resume camp ahead of AAG


A total of 35 players have been invited to the Super Falcons’ camp by Interim Coach Christopher Danjuma ahead of the Women’s Football Tournament of next month’s 11th All-Africa Games in Brazzaville, Congo, and conspicuously omitted is Asisat Oshoala, who is out injured.

The African Women’s Player of the Year missed Sunday’s defeat in Equatorial Guinea – which resulted in the African Champions’ ouster from the 2016 Olympics race – due to a knee injury. However the likes of Onome Ebi, Francisca Ordega, Halimat Ayinde, Esther Sunday and Josephine Chukwunonye – who all missed that tie as well – makes a return to the squad.

Led by the Team Captain Evelyn Nwabuoku, other regulars including, Osinachi Ohale, Ngozi Ebere, Desire Oparanozie and Ngozi Okobi are joined by junior internationals Yetunde Adeboyejo, Chinaza Uchendu and Chinwendu Ihezuo.

All the players are to report at the Serob Legacy Hotel, Abuja on Monday, August 10 with their international passports and training kits.

The Super Falcons will play host Congo-Brazzaville, Tanzania and Cote d’Ivoire in Group A of the Women’s Football Tournament of the All-Africa Games. Cameroon, South Africa, Ghana and Egypt are in Group B.

The 11th African Games are scheduled for September 4–19, 2015 in Brazaville, Congo.
