Nigeria's U-20 women's team, Falconets, are planning 'operation sweep' against the Basetsana of South Africa in the final leg of the 2016 World Cup holding in Papua New Guinea.
The Falconets defeated Congo DR 2-0 in Abuja last weekend to qualify on 4-1 goals aggregate after hitting the Congolese 2-1 in the first leg played to Kinshasa.
The Nigerians who finished second at the 2014 edition of the FIFA Women's U-20 World Cup in Canada, losing 1-0 to Germany in the final, will face their South African opponents in Abuja on October 24 in the first leg of the encounter. The South Africans stopped Zambia to qualify.
Speaking with The Guardian yesterday, the head of women football committee on the board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mrs. Dilichukwu Onyedinma, said that the Falconets would pick the ticket because the girls are working very hard ahead the game.
"Our girls have vowed that it is the World Cup ticket or nothing. So I don't see South Africa stopping them in this final qualifying match," Onyeadinma said.
