Falconets clash against Tunisia fixed for 4pm

12 December 2013, 20:00Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Nigeria U20 Women national team are ready to tackle Tunisian counterpart in a FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifying match.

The game, a second round, first leg tie, comes up at the National Stadium in Abuja on Saturday, 14th December, starting from 4pm.

The North African girls raised not a few eyebrows when pounding their Moroccan counterparts 8-1 on aggregate (4-0 in Morocco and 4-1 in Tunis), but that still paled beside the 16-0 aggregate mauling that the Falconets handed out to their opponents from Sierra Leone.

The Falconets, silver medalists at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Germany in 2010, also reached the semifinals in Japan last year and are considered sure bets for the seventh edition taking place in Canada in August 2014.

The Tunisian delegation flew into Abuja on Wednesday aboard an Egypt Air plane and will depart Abuja on Sunday.
