Nigeria’s female national team, the Super Falcons fly out to Cyprus today, as they get set to commence healthy hostilities in this year’s edition of a 12-team invitational competition in the tiny Island nation.

Falcons’ coach, Thomas Dennerby has rolled out a list of 24 players that will don Nigeria’s green-and-white colours at the 12th Cyprus International Cup, where they will open against Austria on Wednesday, before also facing Slovakia and Belgium in Group C.

Asisat Oshoala and Ngozi Ebere are back in Thomas Dennerby’s squad after both ladies missed the team’s trip to China for a similar competition last month, where they lost to the hosts and settled for bronze in the third-place match against Romania, who earlier lost to South Korea.

The nine-time African champions will now aim to take the top spot at the Cyprus Cup competition, which will hold from Wednesday, February 27 to March 6 in the Mediterranean country.
