Nigeria and South Africa in control

The African representatives for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Chile 2008 will be determined this weekend when the final qualifying round takes place. Congo DR, Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa will fight for the two tickets to South America, with the latter pair in control following success in their first-leg matches.

Nigeria visit Accra in good spirits after a 3-2 victory over Ghana. Then, Anita Amankwah and Diana Ankomah had given the Black Princesses a two-goal lead at the interval, but goals from Orji Ebere, Sarah Michael and Rebecca Kalu completed a rousing second-half comeback.

The Congolese, meanwhile, will host South Africa, who are 3-1 up after goals from Nothando Vilakazi, Tina Selepe and Lusinda Bowers propelled them to victory in Tshwane. "This is a really critical game for us that we have to win so that we achieve our dream of qualification. We cannot afford to let this go when we have worked so much to get so close," said Fran Hilton-Smith , the team manager of South Africa.
