Danjuma invites 30 to Falconets’ camp as Costa Rica 2022 preparations begin

Falconets’ Head Coach Chris Danjuma has invited 30 players to the national under-20 women team’s camp for preparations for this year’s FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup finals in Costa Rica.

It was learned that Nigeria has never missed a FIFA Under-20 Women’s Championship since the competition began as an Under-19 Championship in Canada 20 years ago.

They have now been drawn to take on France, Canada and the Korea Republic in Group C of this year’s tournament scheduled for Costa Rica from Aug. 10 to Aug. 28.

All invited players are to report to Abuja on Sunday, according to a statement on Friday by the Communications Department of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
