Nigeria Football: Falconets Coach drops Uchechi, 6 others

World Cup Silver Medalist, Uchechi Sunday has been decamped.

Falconets Chief Coach, Edwin Okon dropped the player on Tuesday evening along with six others to reduce the number of players in camp to 25.

Uchechi plays for FA Cup winners, Rivers Angels, and featured for the U-20 Women National Team that placed second at the 2010 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany and Super Falcons that failed to qualify for the 2012 Olympics.

Others dropped are Vivian Okotie, Lola Phillips, Bukola Oguinnoiki, Jane David, Tina Oge and Aguawaba Chineyen.

As painful as it was, Okon however thanked the players for their efforts while reminding those left to continue to give their best in training.

"At this time, your efforts must be extra ordinary to make the team," he said. Just last week, five players were decamped.

Only 25 players will make the training tour to South Korea with another four dropped for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup which begins on August 18 in Japan. Nigeria has been drawn against Korea Republic, Brazil and Italy in Group B.
