Nigeria to face Liberia for U20 World Cup

17 June 2015, 11:40

Lagos - Nigeria’s national U20 Women’s football team, the Falconets, will begin their quest for a place at the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup against Liberia in July, it has been confirmed.

Liberia got past Sierra Leone for the right to face Nigeria, who finished as runner-up at the last tournament held in Canada.

Already, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) have appointed officials from Guinea to take charge of the first leg of the fixture, which will take place in Monrovia on July 11.

Aissatou Inter Keita will be the Center Referee, with her compatriots Fantagbe Kaba, Manty Keita and Isatou Touray as Assistant Referee 1, Assistant Referee 2 and Reserve Referee respectively.

Fatou Camara from Mali will be the Match Commissioner.

Led by the reigning African women’s footballer of the year, Asisat Oshoala, the Falconets flew brilliantly all the way to the final in Canada in August last year, only losing to Germany by a lone goal. But Oshoala was adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament, and with her seven goals, also won the Top Scorer award.

Next year’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup finals will be held in Papua New Guinea.

The Nigerian U20 girls is led by Peter Dedevbo.
