The Nigeria U20 Women's team will start their preparation camp for the 2019 Women's football All African Games on Sunday in Abuja.

A week ago, Christopher Danjuma's side had called up 25 players including two Women's World Cup stars in Chiamaka Nnadozie and Chidinma Okeke for the continental showpiece.

The invited players are mandated to report to the Agura Hotel, Abuja with their international passports, birth certificates and training kits on Sunday.

They are expected to commence training activities on Monday for the eight-nation tournament ahead of the trip to Morocco in mid-August.

Nigeria are pitted against South Africa, Cameroon and Zambia in Group B and will begin their campaign against Basetsana at Stade Academie Mohamed VI on August 18.

The women's football championship is the fifth edition and is scheduled to be held from August 17 - 29 in Rabat, Morocco.
