Nigeria’s Super Falcons, including stars Asisat Oshoala, Desire Oparanozie and Francesca Ordega, are scheduled to fly out on Monday to Banjul, capital of Gambia, for the first leg of their 2018 Women Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against the Gambia.
The Gambians defeated Burkina Faso in the earlier round as eight-time champions Nigeria drew bye.
The first leg is billed for Wednesday at the Independence Stadium in Bakau, a short distance from Banjul.
NFF’s Head of Women’s Football, Ruth David, told thenff.com that the Falcons’ delegation will fly aboard an Air Peace aircraft from Lagos on Monday morning, to arrive Banjul by 11am. The team left Abuja for Lagos on Sunday night.
The return leg will take place at the Agege Stadium, Lagos on Monday, 11th June. The fixture is the last qualifying round for the 11th Women Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Ghana later in the year.
