Ahead of their participation in the women’s football event of the 2024 Paris Olympics Games, the Super Falcons held their first training session in their Seville camp on Sunday.

The Games will be held from July 26 to August 11 and Nigeria are returning to the women’s football event since they last featured in 2008.

The Super Falcons camp opened in Spanish City on Friday but didn’t hold any training sessions until Sunday due to the small number of players in camp.

Following reports that most of the players are yet to hit camp, perhaps the numbers are just swelling, as the video released by the Super Falcons Show on X showed a few players and officials strolling into the training ground.

In the video were captain Rasheedat Ajibade, goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi, Deborah Abiodun, Toni Payne and Rivers Angels keeper Morufat Ademola. Some other officials were spotted in the background.

Other players reported to be in camp are goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie, Gift Monday, Chidinma Okeke, and Christy Ucheibe.

The team is expected to depart Spain for France on July 18 after their two-week training in Seville.

Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum last Wednesday named 18 players and four others as alternates for the women’s football event.

Changes are however expected to the squad in the coming days following an injury to midfielder Halimatu Ayinde.

Nine-time African champions Nigeria will tackle Brazil, Spain and Japan, in that order, at this year’s tournament.

Their first game, against Brazil, comes up at the Stade Bordeaux on July 25, before confrontations with Spain (July 28) and Japan (July 31).
