Falconets Off To Douala For Central African Republic Clash


Africa’s most successful team at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup finals, the Falconets of Nigeria will on Saturday commence another race to qualify for the global tournament when they square up to their counterparts from the Central African Republic in the city of Douala, Cameroon.

Africa’s football-governing body, CAF has not approved any stadia facility in Central African Republic as being good enough to host an international match – this has forced the country’s national teams to adopt other nations as ‘home ground’. The country’s Men ‘A’ team played Cape Verde in Douala on Day 1 of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 series, which ended 1-1.

That country’s Men ‘A’ team will take on the Super Eagles in a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Day 3 clash also in Douala.

Falconets have played in every edition of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup since the competition was launched as an U19 tournament in Canada in 2022, winning the silver medals in 2010 in Germany and in 2014 in Canada, and were semifinalists in 2012 in Japan.
