According to the general secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Musa Amadu, the team of 25 players and 11 officials will intensify their build-up for the World Cup in Korea before they fly out to Japan.
“The team will depart the country on August 1 for Korea and will then arrive Japan on August 15,” Amadu disclosed.
The Falconets, who have been training in Abuja since the beginning of July, made history two years ago when they became the first African female team to reach the final of a FIFA tournament.
For this year’s edition of the competition, they are drawn against Brazil, South Korea and Italy in Group B.
They begin their campaign on August 19 against South Korea in Saitama.
