Falcons camp begins to bubble ahead of France friendly

No fewer than nine foreign-based professionals have arrived the Super Falcons camp ahead of Friday's international friendly against France at Stade MMArena in the city of Le Mans. It is reported that American-based based Courtney Dike and Francisca Ordega were the first set of players to arrive at the Mecure Le Mans Centre. And then, powerful Guingamp striker Desire Oparanozie followed suit. Six Swedish-based players captain Rita Chikwelu, Oshinachi Ohale, Ngozi Okobi, Faith Ikidi, Ogonna Chukwudi and Josephine Chukwunonye landed in Paris on Wednesday afternoon and they will be joined by their teammates from Abuja before heading to Le Mans later today. Work permit related issues recently kept captain Mikel Obi away from Nigeria's last 2 friendlies and now, Dalian Quanjian F.C star Asisat Oshoala, who was apparently initially invited for the friendly, had to withdraw from the squad to sort out her work permit matters in China. As a result of her absence, the Nigerian Federation handed a late invitation to S.B.V. Excelsior striker Sophia Omidiji and she'll link up with her teammates in Paris today. Other players are still expected
