Falconets To Travel To Monrovia For U-20 Women’s World Cup Qualifier

The Nigeria Under-20 Women national team will, on Wednesday, depart the country for Monrovia for their 2016 Fifa U-20 Women’s World Cup second round, first leg qualifying match against Liberia.

The Super Falconets are scheduled to face Liberia women and the West African county’s Football Association (LFA) has informed the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) that the match will be played on Sunday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, starting at 4pm.

A contingent of 18 players and nine officials will fly through Accra and Abidjan, before embarking on a final lap to Monrovia; the capital city they are expected to arrive on Friday.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has not decided to move the venue of the match, despite reports of fresh symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus disease in the country.
