Falconets Off To Douala For Central African Republic Clash

Falconets Off To Douala For Central African Republic  Clash

Africa’s most successful team at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup finals, the Falconets of Nigeria will on Saturday commence another race to qualify for the global tournament when they square up to their counterparts from the Central African Republic in the city of Douala, Cameroon.

Africa’s football-governing body, CAF has not approved any stadia facility in Central African Republic as being good enough to host an international match – this has forced the country’s national teams to adopt other nations as ‘home ground’. The country’s Men ‘A’ team played Cape Verde in Douala on Day 1 of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 series, which ended 1-1.


That country’s Men ‘A’ team will take on the Super Eagles in a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Day 3 clash also in Douala.

Falconets have played in every edition of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup since the competition was launched as an U19 tournament in Canada in 2022, winning the silver medals in 2010 in Germany and in 2014 in Canada, and were semi finalists in 2012 in Japan.

Head Coach Christopher Danjuma has picked 23 players from the group that has been training in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja for several weeks now and the contingent will fly out of Abuja on Wednesday night.

The girls from Central African Republic reached this stage of the qualifiers after Equatorial Guinea’s U20 girls withdrew from their preliminary fixture scheduled for last month.

Saturday’s encounter is slated for the Stade Japoma de Douala from 3pm Cameroon time.

  • Frank Opotoboruwe 4 weeks ago

    Na dis Danjuma suppose to dey coach the Super Falcons sef.

  • Adisboy 4 weeks ago

    Frank, he did but failed to qualify the Falcons for the Olympics twice. He’s a failure of a coach. His U20 squad was the worst in the last 10 years.

    • What you have written here is factually incorrect. First, the worst performance by the U20 girls was in 2016 by a team managed by Peter Dedevbo. That team failed to qualify from the group stages of the World Cup. Christopher Danjuma took control of the U20 team in 2017 after which he took the team to the World Cup in 2018. His team spun the likes of Chiamaka Nnadozie (our brilliant goalkeeper), Rasheedat Ajibade, Gift Monday and the rest. That team made it to the quarter finals.
      In 2019, he won the goal medal with the Falconets at the 12th All African Games tournament in Rabat.
      Guys, it is always imperative that we factcheck whatever fallacies some people propagate on this website. People are always trying to push an agenda.
