Rising Starlets coach Beldine Odemba has named the traveling squad for their first leg of the third round of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup qualifier match against Cameroon, which is set to be played on Saturday, November 11, 2023, in Yaounde, Cameroon.

Previously, in the second round, Rising Starlets secured an impressive 10-1 aggregate victory over Angola. Coach Odemba highlighted that there are no injuries in camp, and while the absence of eight players currently sitting for their KCSE exams is a noticeable loss, their replacements have stepped up, ensuring the team remains strong and competitive.

With an eye on the fourth round, the Rising Starlets are determined to overcome their Cameroonian counterparts. Victory in the third round would propel them into a clash with the winner of the Congo-Egypt match. Should the Rising Starlets emerge victorious in the fourth round, they will secure a coveted spot in the 2024 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, scheduled to be hosted in Colombia.

The first leg of this critical encounter will kick off at 7 pm EAT on Saturday, November 11, 2023, at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo.
