Falconets coach invites 29

Head Coach of the Under-20 Women national team Edwin Okon has called to camp 29 players for the second round of the African qualifying series for 2012 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup against the winner of the fixture between Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

The Falconets, who scaled through to the second round without kicking a ball following the withdrawal of Sierra Leone, will host the first leg of the second round fixture in Nigeria on March 31.

Zimbabwe thrashed the largely inexperienced Mozambique side 4-0 in the first leg in Harare and is tipped to complete the demolition job when the two teams clash in Maputo next week.

Nigeria has participated in every edition of the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup since the inaugural event in Canada in 2002. At the last championship in Germany, the Falconets stunned the world by reaching the Final, where they lost 2-0 to hosts Germany.
