FIFA U-17 WWC: Ethiopia to host Nigeria December 1

Share This

Ethiopia will play Nigeria in the second round qualification match of the FIFA Under-17 Women World Cup after Kenya pulled out of the tie.
Kenya cited their inability to raise a team for the first round match this month as their reason for pulling out.
Kenya Football Federation boss Robert Muthomi said: “We were scheduled to play Ethiopia in October 2017. However, following consultations with the schools and Ministry of Education officials, we have decided to withdraw our participation.
“This is to allow players ample time to prepare and sit for their exams, which we also find crucial for their development.”
Ethiopia will host the Flamingoes in the first leg, first round on December 1 before visiting Benin for the second leg two weeks later.
The sixth edition of the Fifa U17 Women’s World Cup will be held in Uruguay with 16 teams to play in the tournament scheduled to hold from November 13 to December 1, 2018.
