Assistant coach of Nigeria's U-17 women national side, Ann Agumanu-Chiejine, has told Completesportsnigeria.com
The game will hold at the Abuja National Stadium and kickoff time is 4pm.
"South Africa see us as rivals in football, especially in the women's game. They are just mouthing of coming to Nigeria to shock us and get a positive result. Our camp is okay, the girls are in great shape and we are ready to beat South Africa," Agumanu-Chiejine, a former Abia Queens coach told Completesportsnigeria.com
The coach who has been appointed as goalkeepers' trainer on interim basis, to work with another former Super Falcons star Florence Omagbemi in the senior women national team would not speak on the new job handed to them, but insisted that the team's concentration is on Saturday's game.
She added: "We have not started the Super Falcons job, so the concentration for me is on this weekend's game. We have to qualify for the U-17 World Cup. I guess my full focus will be on the senior team once the U-17 assignment is done."
Meanwhile head coach of the South African U-17 Women's national team Maude Khumalo is excited at the prospects of playing against Nigeria's U-17 national women's team.
The South African team, Completesportsnigeira.
"We have just finished our final training session ahead of our trip to Abuja on Tuesday. Playing against Nigeria has never been an easy task, but we are up for the challenge. We are not going to put too much pressure on the girls because this will be their first ever international match after Zambia pulled out in the previous round," Khumalo is quoted as saying by allafrica.com.
"We are going to Nigeria with a positive attitude. We will keep the players motivated and we want them to learn as much possible from this encounter ahead of the return leg in a fortnight's time."
