THE final qualifying round fixture for the 11th All-Africa Games (AAG) Women Football Event between Nigeria and Mali will hold on April 10 in Abuja, an official says.
The fixture, which is a return leg match and between the Super Falcons and their Malian counterparts, will now be played at the Abuja National Stadium.
The Nigeria Football Association (NFA) website quoted the Secretary-General of the association, Mohammed Sanusi, as saying a letter to this effect had since been sent to the Mali Football Federation.
He had said the letter was for their information and necessary action.
“The Confederation of African Football (CAF), organisers of the Men and Women events of the AAG, had already permitted the association to host the match within the period April 10 and April 12,’’ Sanusi said.
Meanwhile, a full house has been recorded in the Falcons’ camp in Abuja as the African champions prepare for the crucial return leg.
A win would guarantee the victorious team a place in women’s football event of the AAG, scheduled for Congo-Brazzaville from September 3 to September 18.
Both sides had drawn 1-1 in the first leg game in Bamako about two weeks ago.
