Falconets Goes to Cameroon For CAR Clash

Published

Falconets Celebrating

Falconets of Nigeria will on Saturday commence another race to qualify for the global tournament when they square up to their counterparts from the Central African Republic (CAR) in the city of Douala, Cameroon.

Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has not approved any stadia facility in Central African Republic as being good enough to host an international match – this has forced the country’s national teams to adopt other nations as ‘home ground’. The country’s Men ‘A’ team played Cape Verde in Douala on Day 1 of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 series, which ended 1-1.

Nigeria Falconets have played in every FIFA under 20 Women’s World Cup since the competition was launched as an Under 19 tournament in Canada in 2022, winning the silver medals in 2010 in Germany and in 2014 in Canada, and were semi finalists in 2012 in Japan.

Falconets head Coach Christopher Danjuma has picked 23 players from the group that has been training in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja for several weeks now and the contingent will fly out of Abuja on Wednesday night.

The girls from Central African Republic reached this stage of the qualifiers after Equatorial Guinea’s U20 girls withdrew from their preliminary fixture scheduled for last month.

Saturday’s encounter is slated for the Stade Japoma de Douala from 3pm Cameroon time.

List of FALCONETS PLAYERS FOR CAR CLASH IN DOUALA:

Ayomide Bakare, Monle Oyono, Inyene Etim, Oluwatosin Demehin, Omowunmi Oshobukola, Rofiat Imuran, Jumoke Alani, Angela Michael, Oluwabunmi Oladeji, Oluchi Ohaegbulem, Chidinma Ogbuchi, Rashidat Amoo, Deborah Abiodun, Philomena Yina, Anuoluwapo Salisu, Esther Onyenezide, Mercy Kalu, Joy Jerry, Chioma Sebastine, Taiwo Lawal, Mercy Idoko, Blessing Okpe, Precious Vincent

2021/2022 NPFL Season Kick off Date Revealed

Published

on

NPFL Logo

Chairman of the League Management Company (LMC), Mallam Shehu Dikko has revealed the kick-off date for the 2021/2022 season of the NPFL.

The LMC boss declared October 2021 as when the new season will resume and end in May 2022. Dikko disclosed this during the visit of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Abuja branch, to his office in Abuja.

Dikko noted that it’s only logical to align the league with the calendar of CAF and that the reason the 2020/2021 season rounded off in August is so that the 2021/2022 season could kick off early.

We have a mandate from CAF to align our league with their calendar, the reason we have to do all that we did in August to finish our league and now we have to start early that is certain 2021/2022 we have to finish by May regardless of what happened. We just have to start the new season early and our clubs are ready for these challenges.

We have to come to a conclusion and call our clubs to a meeting on when we will finish our season, the CAF competition starts in September whatever we are doing we have to start by September or early October, we have to agree on the date to start we just finished our season on August 8 the players are not machine we have to give them a month rest and now the continental teams are already in camp now.”

Speaking further, the NPFL Supremo said:
“ideally the CAF competition starts on the 10th of September so whatever we are doing we have to start as quickly as we can.

“So when the CAF competition starts officially and our clubs are readjusting to the new CAF schedule and some of them are into preseason now, we have to target end of September or the 1st week in October.

“We must meet our club owners and we need to have a clearer date that’s why you can see that most of the clubs are already back in camp and hopefully once we cross these hurdles we will be back to the normal league scheduled for CAF competition,” Dikko said.
