With the dust of the recently concluded FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup hardly settled, another sand storm is brewing in Azerbaijan with the imminent start of the U-17 edition of the Women’s World Cup.
In the third edition of the women’s continental showpiece event at U17 level, African representatives, Nigeria and Ghana, have been ever present at the tournament while Gambia will get to rub shoulders with the best in the world at this level for the first time.
Gambia have never qualified a women’s team for a major championship before, and they had never even entered a team in the U-17 preliminaries before. So the success of coach Buba Jallow’s team earlier this year was a pleasant surprise for the small west African nation.
