Nigeria female U17 coach Bala Nkiyu is delighted with the double-header friendly against Ghana early next month.

Both countires are among the representatives of Africa at the forthcoming Fifa Under-17 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica from March 15 to April 4, 2014.

Earlier in the week the football bodies of both countries finalised arrangements for a two-legged friendly tie between their under-17 women sides.

Nkiyu said the friendly matches against the West African perennial rivals will offer his wards a tough challenge as the side intensify preparations for the World Cup.

“Sincerely, immediately after we got the news my technical crew and players were delighted.

“We’re grateful to the federation to avail us such a good test match against Ghana as both sides will be at the World Cup,” the former Super Falcons assistant coach told supersport.com.

Nkiyu charged the players to give the encounter the fight of their lives, insisting that the West African neighbours will not be any easy nut to crack.

“I’ve spoken to the players of the need to step up their games and prove themselves worthy ambassadors at the World Cup.

“Ghana will be a tough challenge for us but it came at the right time for us to know our strength.

“We have a game against Delta Queens tomorrow, we need nothing but victory,” Nkiyu added.

The first leg of the two-legged friendly against Ghana will take place at the Abuja National Stadium on February 2 while the reverse fixture leg will be held at the Accra Sports Stadium on February 9.
