Falconets will on Saturday take on their South African counterparts in the first leg of the final round of African qualifying race for this year’s France 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in August.
Falconets coach Chris Danjuma told thenff.com that his charges, who are scheduled to travel to South Africa on Wednesday, were prepared to take the game to the South Africans in Polokwane.
He said, “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.”
South Africa shot past Namibia and Burundi, and the reward for them is a two-legged battle with Nigeria, with the opening leg at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Saturday.
