Nigeria and Germany will rekindle their rivalry at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup when they clash later this year in their opening group D match of tournament in France.
The Falconets faced Die Nationalelf in the final of the competition in 2010 and four years later in 2014, but lost 1-0 and 2-0 respectively.
Nigeria has a rich history in the U20 Women’s World Cup having qualified for every edition since the inception in 2002.
