The U-20 women national team, Falconets, will face South Africa in the final qualifying round for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup finals.

Nigeria, the reigning world vice champions, earned passage into the final qualifying round on Saturday after a 2-0 defeat of their counterparts from Democratic Republic of Congo in Abuja, for a 4-1 aggregate win.

On their part, South Africa’s Basetsana had a close call as they managed to edge the Zambia U-20 team 3-2 in the return leg in South Africa, following a 0-0 draw in Zambia.

Nigeria will host the first leg at the National Stadium, Abuja on Saturday, October 24, with the return leg in Johannesburg two weeks later.

The winner qualifies for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, to be staged in Papua New Guinea.

Africa’s second representative will emerge from the other end of the qualifying table, with Ghana and Ethiopia looking good to make the final round.

The Black Princesses won 1-0 away to Equatorial Guinea before Sunday’s return leg in Kumasi, and Ethiopia won 2-0 away to Burkina Faso ahead of their return leg in Addis Ababa next weekend after political tension in the West African nation delayed their fixture.
