The Falconets will be leaving in the next few days for Colombia to finalise their preparations for next month’s FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup finals, scheduled for Costa Rica.
Ademola Olajire, the Director of Communications at Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.
“The national under-20 women football team who have been training in Abuja will depart for a one-week training tour in Barranquilla, Colombia,” he said.
The tour will round off the team’s preparations for the competition since their qualification several weeks ago.
Olajire said that from Colombia, the team would fly into San Jose in Costa Rica for the finals, slated to hold from Aug. 10 to Aug. 28.
The Falconets will begin their campaign in the competition on Aug. 12 against France.
They will play other Group C matches against South Korea on Aug. 14 and Canada on Aug. 18.
