The delegation of South Africa’s U-17 women national team are expected to arrive in Nigeria on Tuesday, March 8 ahead of this weekend’s FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup qualifier against Flamingoes.

Both teams will face-off in a third round qualifier, with the winner qualifying for the showpiece in Jordan from September 30 to October 21 this year.

Bantwana as they are referred to, reached the third round of the qualification campaign following the withdrawal of Zambia.

The match will be played at the Abuja National Stadium on Saturday, March 12 by 4pm local time, with the return leg coming up in a fortnight in South Africa.
