Super Falcons were sent packing from the Cyprus Cup on Monday after suffering the second defeat in the tournament losing 1-0 to Belgium.
Falcons won just one out of the three group matches, defeated Slovakia 4-3 on Wednesday and lost by a lone goal to Belgium in the final group game.
The team thus finished third in group C with only three points in three matches.

Second African representatives at the event Bayana Bayana finished last in group A after losing their last match 2-1 to the Czech Republic. The only edge the Falcons have over Bayana Bayana in the tournament is that they managed to win a match while the South Africans drew a match and lost two.
The six teams that made an impressive run of the tournament are Korea DPR and the Czech Republic who finished first and second in Group A, Italy and Mexico who finished first and second in Group B and Austria and Belgium who finished first and second in Group C.
