 Super Falcons’ coaches are waiting anxiously for the doctors to decide whether four key players of the team, include top striker, Asisat Oshoala, Onome Ebi, Ugo Njoku and Faith Ikidi, will be fit for tomorrow’s semifinal game against South Africa.
The players did not join their mates in yesterday’s training sessions due to different shades of injury they copped during their last group game against Kenya.

Nigeria won the match 4-0 to top Group B of the championship, which guaranteed them a semifinal game against South Africa. Then team will remain in Limbe, where they played all their group games.

A source at the team’s camp told The Guardian that the doctors will examine the quartet this evening to ascertain the extent of their injuries, adding that they have been under intense care of the medics, who, however, are hopeful that they will be good to play tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the South African Ladies, who have always fallen to the Super Falcons, have vowed tom turn the tide when they meet tomorrow.

They share the same camp with the Super Falcons at the Parliamentarian Flat Hotel located on the foot of Cameroun Mountain in Buea.

South Africa’s 5-0 demolition of the Egyptians placed them behind host nation, Cameroun, in Group A, which means they have they task of facing Nigerian in the semifinals.

The Falcons went on to win the title, beating Cameroun in the final. Before then, Nigeria had been a major blockage to the Banyana Banyana in the past. (The Guardian)
