The Super Falcons are scheduled to depart the country on Wednesday for North Korea to engage the Asian nation in an international friendly match.

The first match against the North Koreans will take place in Pyongyang on Sunday while the second match will take place on Tuesday.
Uche said,'We are happy this opportunity is coming at this time. North Korea is among the leading nations in women's football in the world and their team will provide us with stiff opposition.'
The players include Precious Dede, Tochukwu Oluehi, Martina Ohadugha, Ulumma Jerome, Lilian Cole, Josephine Chukwunonye, Tawa Ishola, Stella Godwin, Ebere Orji, Gift Otuwe, Akudo Iwuagwu, Loretta Sador and Titilayo Mekuneyi.
