Danjuma is new coach of Falconets

The Nigeria Football Feder­ation (NFF) has appoint­ed Christopher Danjuma as Head Coach of the U-20 Women National Team, also known as Fal­conets.

Danjuma will be assisted by Wemimo Matthew (1st Assistant Coach), Mansur Abdullahi (2nd Assistant Coach) and Abdul-lateef Yusuf (Goalkeeper Trainer).

The quartet is expected in Abuja on Wednesday next week to open camp for screening of players for next month’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifying match be­tween Nigeria and Tanzania.

According to fixtures released by the Confederation of African Foot­ball, two –time FIFA World Cup sil­ver medallists Falconets will take on Tanzania in Nigeria on the week­end of 15-17 September, with the return leg in Dar es Salaam two weeks later.

The winner over both legs will then confront the winner of the fixture pairing Morocco against Senegal in November, before a fi­nal round of qualifying matches in January 2018.
