WorldStage Newsonline-- The return leg of the international friendly between the U-20 Women National Teams of Ghana and Nigeria scheduled for Accra on Thursday, July 26, will proceed as planned, the Board Member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Dilichukwu Onyedinma disclosed on Wednesday.

There had been fears that the match may be cancelled following the sudden death on Tuesday of Ghanaian President, Professor John Atta Mills.

"We have just been informed by the Ghana FA that the game will still be played," said Onyedinma who is also the leader of delegation.

Falconets lost the first leg played on Tuesday afternoon 3-2.

"We have spoken to the girls to forget the loss and brace up for the game which they have promised to win in order to redeem the nation's image," she added.

Both countries will be representing Africa at next month's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan.
