U17 Women’s World Cup Qualifier: Flamingos To Face CAR As Mauritius Withdraws


Nigeria’s U-17 women’s national team, the Flamingos, are gearing up for an exciting encounter against the Central African Republic in the Second Round of the 2024 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers.

This development follows the withdrawal of Mauritius from the qualifiers, leading to a reshuffling of the fixtures.

Initially, Mauritius was scheduled to face Cape Verde in the first round of the qualifiers this month. However, their withdrawal has paved the way for the Flamingos to take on the Central African Republic in a crucial two-legged clash.

The two matches are scheduled to take place between February 2 and 11, 2024, marking a significant phase in the journey towards the World Cup.

The Nigerian team is entering the qualifiers with high hopes, having secured a commendable third position in the last edition of the U-17 Women’s World Cup, which was hosted by India. With eyes set on improving their past performance, the Flamingos are preparing to make a strong impact in the upcoming qualifiers.

Looking forward, the next edition of the U-17 Women’s World Cup is scheduled to be hosted by the Dominican Republic from October 16 to November 3, 2024. This tournament will offer a global stage for young talents to showcase their skills and represent their nations with pride.
