National junior women’s football teams of Ghana, Cameroon and Morocco have qualified for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup final which will be played in Colombia from August 31 to September 22, 2024.
They join Nigeria’s U-20 women’s football team, Falconets who were the first African team to qualify for the competition after edging Burundi 1-0 at Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Saturday to go through on 2-0 aggregate.
Ghana’s Black Princesses thrashed the Teranga Lionesses of Senegal 5–1 at Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi to qualify on 7-1 aggregate while Morocco despite losing 0-1 to Ethiopia in Addis Ababa still qualified 2-1 on aggregate courtesy of 2-0 first leg win in Rabat.
Also, Cameroon’s junior Lionesses in spite playing out a 1-1 draw in Douala, relied on the 4-2 away victory against Egypt to qualify on 5-3 aggregate.
The four countries Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and Morocco have therefore qualified to represent Africa in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup final later in the year.
