Although FIFA is yet to make an official pronouncement on the hosting rights of the FIFA U-20 women’s world cup, but U.S football authority has revealed the competition will be staged in Nigeria.
Nigeria has shown interest in hosting the tournament, but the world football governing body aren’t satisfied with state of facilities since their inspection visit in August.
However, US Soccer body has somehow revealed on their official website that Nigeria will host the rest of the world for the Championship next year.
“The next Fifa U20 Women’s World Cup – to be held in Nigeria — will be the 10th world championship tournament contested at this age level,” US Soccer wrote on its website.
“The USA has participated in the previous nine (the first two being held as U19 tournaments) and has won it three times, finishing third once and fourth twice, while painfully exiting the tournament on penalty kicks three times.
“Should the USA qualify through the Concacaf tournament early next year, it’s likely several future full team stars will be on display in Africa.”
Nigeria are facing tough tasks to meet all the required conditions to secure the hosting rights from FIFA.
