The Super Falcons are debutants and second African side alongside South Africa will compete at the 12th edition of the round-robin tournament which features 12-nation from four continents.
Having left Nigeria on Sunday, the African queens traveled through Cairo, Egypt, where they had an unscheduled day-long stopover before they hit the Cypriot city.

Upon their arrival, the delegation were lodged at the Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, where they teamed up with other foreign-based mates and head coach Thomas Dennerby.
On Tuesday evening, Dennerby also received his assistant Jörgen Pettersson plus newly recruited video analyst Matti Demegård – all of Sweden.
Nigeria will open their debut campaign against Austria at AEK Arena on Wednesday at 6 pm and they take on Slovakia four days later before battling Belgium on March 4.
