The Super Falcons of Nigeria are out to claim the 7th place position when they tackle Thailand women team at the Tassos Markou Stadium in their last game of the 2019 Cyprus Womens Cup.
Thomas Dennerby side missed out on a podium finish after losing two games and winning just one of their games in Cyprus.
Surprise 4-1 loss to Austria in thir first game and a heart-breaking 1-0 defeat to Belgium in their last game rendered their 4-3 win against Slovakia in their second game almost inconsequential.

The 7-8th match will be played by 2 pm Nigerian time.
