JOHANNESBURG – The South African Under-17 Women (Bantwana) will have their penultimate training session on Sunday to prepare for the second leg of their 2nd and final round of the 2018 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers in Morocco

South Africa fly out to Morocco on Tuesday ahead of their showdown with the host nation on Saturday at Stade Boubker Aamar in Sale. Bantwana take a healthy 5-1 lead from the first leg played last weekend at the Dobsonville Stadium.

Bantwana, presently in camp at the Nike Training Centre in Pimville, Soweto, will wrap up their training on Monday.

The South Africans will have two training sessions in South Africa (Sunday and Monday) before departing for Morocco on Tuesday, 13 February.

Bantwana is one of three African nations eyeing a spot at the 2018 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup, scheduled for 13 November to 1 December in Uruguay.

In other encounters, Ghana, who enjoy a 9-0 first leg victory, welcome Djibouti on Sunday, 18 February, while it is going to be battle royale when Nigeria visit Cameroon in Yaounde on Saturday, 17 February – the first leg clash ended in a 2-2 stalemate in Benin City, Nigeria.
