Ebi Tips Falconets To Qualify From Tough Women’s World Cup Group

By Johnny Edward: Super Falcons defender, Onome Ebi, believes that the Falconets have enough quality to qualify from their tough 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup group, Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.

The FIFA U-20 World Cup will hold in France from 5- 24 August.

Two-time runners-up of the competition, Nigeria, were drawn in Group D alongside Haiti, Germany and China PR

“The group is a tough one,” Ebi who recently joined Chinese Women’s Super League side, Henan Huishang, told CSN.

“But I am confident they will scale through to the next round.”

Nigeria will take on Germany in their opening game on the 6th of August before facing Haiti and China on the 9th and 13th respectively.

The Falconets recorded five wins and a draw during the qualifying series scoring 23 goals and conceding two.

Nigeria and three other teams – USA, Germany and Brazil have appeared in every edition of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup tournament and the 2018 edition in France will be their fifth appearance apiece.
