Nigeria’s Falconets get new head coach


The Nigeria Football Federation has appointed Christopher Danjuma as Head Coach of the U20 Women National Team, otherwise known as Falconets.

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

They are expected in the Federal Capital, Abuja on Wednesday next week to open camp for the screening of players for next month’s FIFA U20 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.

Recall that the Falconets had reached the semi finals in Japan in 2012 but failed to reach the knock –out stage in Papua New Guinea last year.
