Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa are highly favoured to book their places at the next stage of the continental qualifiers of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, Papua New Guinea 2016.
This follows huge margin wins during the first leg matches a fortnight ago.
Finding themselves in the same situation are DR Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Zambia, whilst Burkina Faso look set to complete a double over their Algerian counterparts at the weekend in Ouagadougou, after a 2-1 victory in the previous fixture.

Whilst Nigeria has appeared in every edition of the biennial global championship since its inception in 2002, Ghana has qualified since 2010, confirming their status as the pioneers of women’s football on the continent.
The Falconets of Nigeria will be at home in Abuja against Liberia whilst Ghana’s Princesses are away in Dakar against Senegal.
South Africa’s Basetsana look set to compound the woes of regional rivals, Botswana in Gaborone whilst the Young Gladiators of Namibia have a mountain to climb against DR Congo in Windhoek after a 4-0 loss from the first leg in Kinshasa.
Two teams will qualify to represent Africa at the final tournament scheduled for October 28 to November 16, 2016 in Papua New Guinea.
