Nigeria arrive in Larnaca for Cyprus Women’s Cup

The Super Falcons side arrived in Larnaca on Tuesday morning ahead of their 2019 Cyprus Women’s Cup opener against Austria on Wednesday.

The Super Falcons are debutants and second African side alongside South Africa will compete at the 12th edition of the round-robin tournament which features 12-nation from four continents.

Having left Nigeria on Sunday, the African queens traveled through Cairo, Egypt, where they had an unscheduled day-long stopover before they hit the Cypriot city.
