Nigeria’s U17 Women Head Coach Bankole Olowookere has picked 22 players for Friday’s World Cup qualification final round, first leg match between against Ethiopia in Addis Ababa.
The delegation will travel to Addis Ababa on Wednesday.
After cleans sweeps against Congo DRC and Egypt, Nigeria have a final hurdle to negotiate against a team that sensationally sent South Africa packing with a 3-0 win in Johannesburg.
The Flamingos are also to be dreaded, having scored 14 goals and conceded none in their four qualifying matches so far.
Nigeria defeated DR Congo 8-0 on aggregate and handed Egypt a 6-0 aggregate spanking in the third round.
Friday’s game will hold at the Abebe Bikila Stadium in Addis Ababa with kick off at 4pm Ethiopia time (2pm Nigeria time) and will be superintended by Namibian officials.
The return leg is already scheduled for the National Stadium, Abuja on Saturday, 4th June.
