Ghana 2018: Super Falcons off to Abidjan for final camping

Cup holders, Super Falcons of Nigeria will spend eight days at a training camp in Abidjan to perfect tactics and strategy for the defence of their continental title before arriving in Ghana for the 11th Women Africa Cup of Nations finals.

The team, which has been camping in the magnificent Jubilee Chalets and Resort in Epe near Lagos – courtesy of the Lagos State Government – for the past few weeks, will travel aboard an Air Ivoire flight on Tuesday morning to the Ivorian capital.

Head Coach Thomas Dennerby on Monday unveiled a list of 23 players who will make the trip to the world –renowned ASEC Mimosas FC academy, Sol Beni, before two players are cut for a final squad of 21 for the trip to Cape Coast.

Thenff.com learnt that the eight –time African champions will play a couple of friendly games in the Sol Beni camp before flying to Ghana on 14th November – four days to their Group B opening encounter against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana.

Nigeria will also tackle Zambia and Kenya in their pool, as they bid for a ninth continental title out of 11 championships.

Dennerby will be joined on the technical bench by fellow Swede Jorgen Petersson, as well as Justine Madugu and Maureen Madu.

Hosts Ghana, Algeria, Mali and Cameroon will battle things out in Group A in Accra.

The coach probably has watched them play more closely.
Re: Ghana 2018: Super Falcons Off To Abidjan For Final Phase Of Camping by naptu2: 9:52am On Nov 06
The Super Falcons are the most successful African national team. They have won the African Women's Championship/Nations Cup 10 times.

1991, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2014, 2016.

The most successful African men's national team is Egypt, which has won the Nations Cup 7 times.

Sweden has one of the best women's leagues in the world. African women aspire to play in either Sweden, the USA or China.

This is one of the things that determined the NFF's choice of coaches. They initially tried to get an American and when that failed, they went for a Swede.

Most of the best African women have played in either Sweden, the USA or China at some point in their career.


Perpetua Nkwocha, Gaelle Enganamouit, Tabitha Chawinga, etc all played in Sweden at some point in their career. Nkwocha is presently coaching in Sweden.
