By Adebayo Williams

Super Falcons’ midfielder Rita Chikwelu has slumped to relegation from the Swedish women’s topflight division with her club Umea Ik. The club failed to overcome fellow relegation-strugglers Kristianstad on Saturday. They played a 1-1 draw with their hosts to lose a chance of staying in the league.

Chikwelu scored four times for the club in 22 appearances.

She is expected to report to Super Falcons’ camp before Tuesday for the African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
