SUPER FALCONS TO TRAIN IN GHANA FOR 2012 AWC
The Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed a one-week training tour of Ghana for Super Falcons ahead of the 2012 AWC in Equatorial Guinea.
The football house director of competitions, Dr Mohammed Sanusi said the Falcons are expected to play two friendly matches while in Ghana.
The nation's campaigners will depart for Accra, Ghana on Wednesday, October 18.
Sanusi restated NFF's commitment towards ensuring the six-time African champions retain the title they won in South Africa in 2010.
Coach Kadiri Ikhana, who led Enyimba to their first Caf Champions League title win in 2003, will lead the Falcons as they attempt to win the African Women's Championship (AWC) for a record seventh time.
Sanusi said the Glass House has absolute confidence in the coach and will give him the necessary support to succeed.
The Falcons will leave Accra for Equatorial Guinea on October 25 and will play their opening game at the 2012 AWC on October 29 against bitter rivals, the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon.
