The Super Falcons have moved straight into action hours after arriving their base in France for the 2019 Women's World Cup.

Coach Thomas Dennerby's charges had their first training session in Reims as they continue their preparations for their opener against Norway on Saturday.

The Nigerian ladies were warmly received on arrival in Reims yesterday for their eighth outing at the global showpiece.

They would battle for a slot in the knockout stages against former world champions Norway, South Korea and hosts, France, in Group A.

The nine-time African Women's Cup of Nations winners played 14 friendlies in the buildup to the tournament, including three against European sides.

Nigeria will look to get out of the group stages for the first time in five attempts and possibly match or surpass their previous best which was a quarter-final finish twenty years ago.
