The Nigeria Football Federation has invited 30 players to the camp of the under 20 women national team, also known as Falconets, in preparation for the African qualifying series for this year’s FIFA U-20 world cup finals.


The falconets will be playing a world cup qualifying game away to Sierra Leone mid-February, with the return leg scheduled for Nigeria two weeks later.

The invited players are to report at the FIFA Technical Centre, National Stadium, Abuja today with their birth certificates.

Since the FIFA U-20 women’s world cup was launched in Canada in 2002, Nigeria has qualified to represent Africa in every edition, making it to the quarter finals in Thailand in 2004, Russia in 2006 and Chile in 2008.
