Nigeria Football Federation has announced a two-week break for players and officials of the Female National Team, Super Falcons, following their arrival in the country from FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
This was contained in a draft read by the Secretary-General of the body, Dr Mohammed Sanusi while receiving the contingent at Abuja on Saturday.
“The Super Falcons and their technical and backroom staff will have the opportunity of spending about two weeks at home, before resuming camp for next month’s 2016 Olympics qualifying fixture against Equatorial Guinea,” it stated.
Super Falcons crashed out of the ongoing tournament after finishing bottom of Group D with one point behind USA, Australia and Sweden.
After putting up a virtuoso performance in their opening game against Sweden, in which they came twice from behind to secured a 3-3 draw, they were completely outclassed in the second game, losing 2-0 to Australia.
A 1-0 loss to USA in the final group game was to prematurely end their adventure in Canada.
