Japanese-based defender Chidinma Okeke, NWFL Premiership stars Linda Jiwuaku (Bayelsa Queens) and Shukurat Oladipo (FC Robo Queens) have also linked up with the squad in the nation's capital and were spotted having dinner on Monday evening. 

It should be noted that Super Falcons manager Randy Waldrum is keeping his preparations under wraps and does not want any distractions.

And because of the aforementioned reasons, the Super Falcons' training session on Tuesday, April 2 will be held behind closed doors.
