Nigerian U17 Girls Prepare for FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup African Qualification Series

The Nigerian U17 girls' team, the Flamingos, are gearing up for their upcoming FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup African qualification series against Burkina Faso. Departing for Bamako, Mali, on Thursday, they are set to face off in the first leg of the third round on Saturday.

Having missed only one edition of the competition since its inception in 2008, the Nigerian team is determined to secure a strong victory in Bamako. Their Head Coach, Bankole Olowookere, emphasized the importance of converting opportunities during match situations, despite a convincing 9-1 win in a preparatory game.

In a recent development, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has made a change to the match officials for Saturday's game at the Stade 26 March in Bamako. Originally slated to be the fourth official, Joselyn Nsabimana has been replaced by Teneba Bagayoko from Mali. The referee, assistant referees, and other officials remain unchanged.

With anticipation building for the clash, both teams are ready to showcase their talent and determination on the field. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting qualifier match.
