The Super Falcons will have to put the bad treatment they have been getting from Nigeria football administrators behind them as quickly as they can as the final squad for the 11th African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) finals in Ghana has been released by Head Coach Thomas Dennerby.
The championship starts next week, with Cup holders Nigeria heading Group B of the competition, to contend with South Africa, Zambia and Kenya.
On Monday, the eight –time champions traveled without proper kits to Sol Beni, Abidjan for an eight–day final camping, immediately generating an uproar on social media.
