Cameroon U17 women team landed in Benin City on Thursday evening ahead of their Fifa U17 Women's World Cup qualifier clash with Nigeria on Saturday.

The Baby Lionesses, who crushed Algeria 10-0 on aggregate to reach the final stage, arrived in Lagos on Wednesday before connecting to the Edo state capital a day after.

Upon their arrival, the central Africans were lodged at the Best Western Hotel in Benin City and they will have a feel of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium pitch on Friday evening.

The Cameroonians are hoping for the second appearance at the showpiece after making their debut in 2016 as they will anticipate a first-leg lead against Nigeria.

Team's head coach Birwe Minkreo will rely on the red-hot form of duo Alice Kameni and Marie Ngah to upset the Flamingoes in front of their home fans.

The 16-national women’s youth international competition is scheduled to hold from November 13 to December 1, 2018.
