Super Falcons Announce Squad for Paris 2024 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Qualification Fixture Against Ethiopia

The Nigerian Super Falcons have revealed their squad for the upcoming Paris 2024 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament qualification fixture against Ethiopia. Goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie, defender Osinachi Ohale, and forward Asisat Oshoala headline the list of 22 players invited to the national team’s camp.

Ethiopia will host the first leg of the second-round fixture in Addis Ababa on Wednesday, 25 October, with the second leg taking place in Nigeria on Tuesday, 31 October. Ethiopia advanced to this round after eliminating Chad, while Nigeria received a bye as a nine-time African champion.

The Super Falcons recently participated in the 32-team FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in Australia and New Zealand, finishing in 8th place. They also received a bye to the third round of the 2024 Women Africa Cup of Nations qualification series after Sao Tome and Principe withdrew from the tie.

Next year’s Women’s Olympic Football Tournament will be held in Paris, France. The Super Falcons have previously competed in the Olympics in 2000, 2004, and 2008.

The invited players for the Super Falcons’ camp include goalkeepers Chiamaka Nnadozie, Tochukwu Oluehi, and Monle Oyono. The defensive lineup features players such as Osinachi Ohale, Comfort Folorunsho, Oluwatosin Demehin, Michelle Alozie, Nicole Payne, Jumoke Alani, and Rofiat Imuran.

In midfield, the team includes Halimatu Ayinde, Peace Efih, Christy Ucheibe, Rasheedat Ajibade, Toni Payne, and Regina Otu. The forward line comprises Omorinsola Babajide, Ifeoma Onumonu, Asisat Oshoala, Uchenna Kanu, Gift Monday, and Opeyemi Ajakaye.

The Super Falcons aim to secure victory over Ethiopia to progress in the qualification process for the Paris 2024 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament.
