“We organized a camp for our team and they will be in Nigeria. While in Nigeria, they will play a series of friendly matches before the tournament.

"We are doing this to help the team acclimatize to conditions in West Africa before the tournament.”

The southern Africans would be hoping to excel this time on their second attempt in the women’s football event, which is expected to produce three-team for the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.
