The draw for the football event of the 12th All-Africa Games has been conducted in Cairo, Egypt with host nation, Morocco heading Group A that also has Equatorial Guinea, Mali and Algeria.
Nigeria head Group B and will trade tackles with Cameroon, South Africa and Zambia.
Organisers have reiterated that this year’s Games of the women’s football event will be contested by players under the age of 20. This means Nigeria’s team will be composed of the U20 girls, also known as Falconets.
Some months ago, Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) announced that the teams that featured at the 11th edition of the Africa Women Cup of Nations in Ghana in November/December 2018 would be the same teams to contest for medals at the football event.
The 12th All-Africa Games will hold from August 19-31, 2019.
