Nigeria U-17 women's national team, the Flamingos, will leave for Johannesburg on Wednesday morning for the return leg of the final qualifying round for this
year’s FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup against South Africa, the Nigeria Football Federation said on their official website on Tuesday.
The Flamingos won the first leg 6-0 inside the Abuja National Stadium penultimate weekend.
Speaking ahead of the reverse fixture, coach Bala Nikyu has said that the aim is to go to South Africa and win.
"We are not going to allow the Bantwana to cancel any of the goals we scored in Nigeria. Rather, we are going to score more goals and hope to replicate the feat we
achieved in Namibia by beating them in South Africa," Nikyu said.
"The girls are confident of cementing their World Cup qualification and it can only be done if we do not underrate the South Africans, and go all out on the attack."
Nigeria has participated at all previous editions of the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup final competitions since its inception in 2008 in New Zealand, and reached
the quarter -finals in the last three editions.
This year's edition will be held in Jordan from September 30 to October 21 this year.
