Nigeria U17 women team will resume camp on Wednesday, January 3 ahead of next month's Fifa U17 Women's World Cup qualifier against Cameroon.

The Flamingos defeated Ethiopia on away goal rule following a 1-1 draw on aggregate to reach the second round of the qualifiers.

Ahead of the first leg, Bala Nikyu's girls will return to Serob Hotel, Abuja and are expected to commence training on Thursday for the showdown with the Junior Lionesses.

It is first-time both nations are meeting since 2008 at the U17 level with the west African unbeaten in the two previous World Cup qualifier contests between them. 

While the Flamingoes are bidding for their sixth appearance at the World Cup, their neighbours will be aiming for the second after their first ever outing in Jordan in 2016.

Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium will be the host venue for the first leg on February 3, while the return leg will hold two weeks later at the Ahmaduo Ahijo Stadium in Yaounde.

Winner over the two legs will emerge one of the three African representatives at the Fifa U17 Women's World Cup scheduled to hold from November 13 to December 1, 2018, in Uruguay.
