Goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi, midfielders Deborah Abiodun and Jennifer Echegini round out the current group.

Alternate players, goalkeeper Morufa Ademola and forward Gift Monday, are also on hand to provide depth and support to the main squad. Additionally, defenders Osinachi Ohale and Michelle Alozie joined camp earlier this week.
