Nigeria Falconets are heaving a sigh of relief that the weather condition in Port Moresby will not pose any challenges to them because of the similarity to what they experience back home.
Prior to their arrival in Port Moresby, the players had nursed reservations about the weather situation, a fear occasioned by the days it took to get to the host country.
Among themselves, the girls have continued to talk about the weather that they have unanimously agreed is equivalent to the one back home in Nigeria.
One of the players, Ogechi Ukwuoma exclaimed that she now appreciated better Coach Peter Dedevbo’s training schedule while in camp in Abuja.
“I now understand why Coach always insisted that we train earlier in the afternoon in Nigeria. The weather here is comparable to the one we had in Abuja”.
A member of the Local Organising Committee member, Brian said that Papua New Guinea experiences only rainy and dry seasons every year.
Meanwhile, construction workers in Papua New Guinea are working round the clock to ensure that Nigeria’s World Cup venue, Bava Park is in top shape to welcome football hostilities on November 13.
Nigeria and Japan will play their Group B opening match at the Bava Park Stadium located in the Bisini Sports Precinct, Port Moresby by 7pm local time on Sunday.
