The African giant will lock horns with the confident Europeans with a ticket to the last four of the World Cup at stake

High-flying Nigeria have a tough challenge to surmount when they pit their wits against the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the 2022 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

The Falconets have been one of the most delightful teams to watch in Costa Rica, claiming a perfect three wins out of three group games.

Victories over France, South Korea, and Canada secured maximum points and the top spot in Group C for the coach Chris Danjuma Musa-led side. It is the first time Nigeria will win their opening three matches in ten appearances across twenty years at the World Cup.

But that fine run will be put to the test on Sunday night by the Netherlands.

Led by 41-year-old coach Jessica Torny, the Dutch girls finished as Group D runners-up behind defending champions Japan.

With a game plan built on quick passing and sleek movement, it is no surprise that the Netherlands have been one of the tournament’s best-attacking machines. Only Spain (8) have scored more goals than the Oranje girls’ seven.

And with Nigeria boasting one of the best defences around (conceding just once), an intriguing contest is shaping up in Alajuela.
