Suspension may cost Super Falcons World Cup place

Serial continental champions, the Super Falcons will become the first major casualty of Nigeria's suspension by FIFA.
The senior women's national team will miss out on next year's FIFA Women's World Cup unless the suspension is lifted before the start of the African Women Championships on October 31.
The tournament also serves as qualifiers for the World Cup, with the two finalists advancing to compete against the rest of the world in Germany next June.
If the Super Falcons, who have qualified for, and represented Africa at every FIFA Women's World Cup since 1991, do not take part in the African tournament, they will be automatically knocked out of the World Cup.
