Power forwards Desire Oparanozie and Asisat Oshoala top the list of 23 players who will dorn Nigeria’s colours at the 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in France, as Head Coach Thomas Dennerby released Nigeria’s final squad in Austria on Friday.

Usual suspects Tochukwu Oluehi, Osinachi Ohale, Ngozi Ebere, Rita Chikwelu, Ngozi Okobi, Halimatu Ayinde, Asisat Oshoala, Rasheedat Ajibade and Francisca Ordega are all on the roster.

But defender Josephine Chukwunonye and England –based forward Ini-Abasi Umotong were axed.

Defender Chidinma Okeke made the cut, as did midfielders Amarachi Okoronkwo and Evelyn Nwabuoku and home –based forward Alice Ogebe.


The Super Falcons will depart Austria – where they are on a two-week residential camping – Tuesday, 4th June for France, where they play Norway, Korea Republic and host nation France (in that order) in the group phase.
