Benin beat Niger [7-1] on Saturday at the Charles de Gaulle stadium in Porto-Novo, to qualify for the second round of the qualifiers for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, Costa Rica 2022™.

This victory happened two weeks after a very convincing success in Niamey in the first leg [1-6].

Abdoulaye Ouzérou’s players chained to a second consecutive victory against Niger in their second leg of the first round of the qualifiers. They won the match 7-1, thanks to goals from Eunice Sagbohan [3′], Bernice Inonnabi [31′], Marguerite Semedeton Ahouassou from the penalty spot in the 45th minute, Djidjoho Joëlle Élisabeth Kpadonou [56′], Kpenagni Urisse Erudice Kounasso [75′] and a brace from Edwige Kedokpo [11′ and 65′]. Naïma Al Moustapha Hanjar closed the gap for Niger three minutes after the break [48′].

With an aggregate 13-2 win, the Benin women’s U-20 team easily advance to the second round of the qualifiers for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup and will face Morocco next September.

Meanwhile in Matola, Mozambique secured their ticket to the next round by beating Eswatini. First-half goals from Elsa Mulingandale [20 ‘] and Nadia Jacinto [35’] sealed the Mozambican victory [2-0 on aggregate]. In the first leg, the two teams separated with a goalless draw.

Three more rounds will be played, and only two nations will represent Africa at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, Costa Rica 2022™.
