The German coach was impressed with what he saw in camp and advised Super Falcons to have fun but be serious.

You must have a good team spirit because it is very important to not just play together but bond together and have fun in training and in the camp as well,” Rohr said.

"To have fun but to be very serious. It is what we do in the Super Eagles team. We have the family spirit of oneness and togetherness.

“Not just like a team but to live like a family. With this, you can become champions again. And I am going to be in Cameroon to support you.

"I see some girls here today but I know that professionals will join them very soon. Very good players, some of them play in big countries like USA, Sweden, France.

The other teams in Nigeria group don't have many of such players I think. So, it's a good team and you also have experience."

Head Coach of the Super Falcons, Florence Omagbemi on Monday, October 10 released a 30-man list invited to camp.

Just eight of the 30 invite are foreign based players while the other 22 are home-based.

Reigning Africa Woman Player of the Year Asisat Oshoala leads the overseas –based contingent while Osinachi Ohale leads the home –based.
