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