Nikyu, Oboduku in Jordan for U-17 World Cup draw
Flamingoes Coach, Bala Nikyu, and Team Administrator, Mary Oboduku, have arrived in Amman, Jordan for today’s draw ceremony for this year’s FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. The duo left Nigeria on Saturday.
The draw ceremony will hold at the King Hussein Cultural Centre, Amman, and will segment the 16 qualified nations into four groups of four teams each.
Already, the pots have been determined, in line with the ranking of the teams in the past four editions of the competition that was launched in New Zealand in 2008. Five extra points are allotted to continental champions, with Nigeria one of the beneficiaries.
In pot 1 are Jordan, Japan, Germany and Korea DPR, while Nigeria is in pot 2 alongside Spain, Venezuela and Ghana.
Pot 3 has Canada, USA, Mexico and Brazil, while Pot 4 contains New Zealand, England, Paraguay and Cameroun.
