Nff-Falconets-South-Africa
Nigeria’s
U20 girls, Falconets, will play their South African counterparts in
the first leg of the final round of African qualifying race for this
year’s FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup finals.
The
9th FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup finals will hold in five cities in
France 7th – 26th August 2018.
To
reach this stage, the Falconets overwhelmed their counterparts from
Tanzania 9-0 on aggregate, before sending Morocco’s impressive U20
girls packing 6-2 after two legs.
The
South African girls shot past Namibia and Burundi, and the reward for
them is a two –leg battle with rivals Nigeria, with the opening leg
at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Saturday, starting from
3pm South African time (2pm Nigeria time).
Coach
Chris Danjuma told thenff.com on Tuesday that his charges, who depart
Nigeria on Wednesday night aboard a South African Airways flight from
Lagos, are prepared to take the game to the South Africans in
Polokwane.
We
have been working very hard at training for some weeks now, and we
are very focused on earning the World Cup ticket. Of course, we
understand that the South Africans would be tougher opposition than
our previous opponents.
We
are ready for them. Our eyes are on the ticket to France.”
