Super Falcons caretaker coach Florence Omagbemi is still absent from camp as a result of her disconcert with her role as interim coach.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) named Omagbemi as assistant coach to a yet to be named foreign coach, alongside her former team mates, Perpetua Nkwocha and Ann Agumanu-Chiejine.

The former Falcons Captain invited 40 players to commence preparations for the April 4 qualifying match against Senegal or Guinea in Abuja for a place in the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations(AWCON) in Cameroon, with the reverse fixture two weeks later.

The trio of Ann Agumanu-Chiejine, Perpetua Nkwocha and Bala Mohammed have been in charge of training, which opened on March 1 in Abuja, without the interim coach and with no clear word when she will hit camp. But The NFF technical committee head, Barr. Chris Green explained on March 1 that Omagbemi personally requested a two-week grace period, which he gladly granted her.

Two weeks down the line and the former defensive midfielder is still nowhere near the Falcons camp and her expected arrival date is not known ,Prompting surmise that she wants nothing short of a firm coaching role for the seven-time African champions.

Omagbemi had a stint with the U20 Women’s Team, the Falconets and led the team to the semi-final, where they lost to The United States of America.
