Falconets Now Set to Play Sierra Leone in a 2014 World Cup Qualifier.

Nigeria’s women under-20 team lines up against their Sierra Leonean counterparts in the first round of the African qualifiers for the 2014 Fifa U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

This, according to a letter from the Confederation of African Football (Caf), is as a result of the withdrawal of Burkina Faso from the race to the women’s soccer showpiece.

The Falconet hosts the first round of the two-legged tie at the newly refurbished Abuja National Stadium on October 26 before flying to Freetown for the return leg slated for November 9.

The coach Peter Dedevbo-led ladies are currently undergoing a screening exercise at their Abuja camp.

Already Caf has appointed Dayves Ross Leopoldina from Guinea Bissau as Referee for the match, with her compatriots Amancio Biague Deolinda and Gomes Mariza Antonio as Assistant Referee 1 and 2 respectively.
