The Flamingos team that won the bronze medals in the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in India last year is represented by a sizable number of Danjuma’s World Cup quarterfinalists, as well as a few players from Costa Rica from the previous year.
On Sunday, October 22, the invited players are to report at the Chida Hotel in Utako, Abuja.
FIFA, the organisation that governs the game of football worldwide, has expanded the number of finalists for the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup final competition in Colombia, from the 16 who competed in Costa Rica, to 24, as well as the number of Africa’s flag bearers, from two to four.
