Super Falcons Assistant Coach, Ann Chiejine has warned the likes of Asisat Oshoala, Francisca Ordega and company that they won’t be guaranteed an automatic shirt ahead of the 2016 African Women’s Championship in Cameroon.
Nigeria are the defending champions of the competition having won the trophy in the 2014 tournament that was hosted in Namibia.
“We spoke with the Head Coach and we all agreed to make it an open contest. It’s a new set of technical crew. No permanent jersey for anybody. You’ll have to come and fight for a jersey,” Chiejine said.
“We have twenty-seven home based players while we are waiting for the professionals to come. So, when they come they’ll have to fight to get their jersey.
“This is why we are trying to see how we can blend the young, the old and the new together,” Chiejine concluded.
