Dream come true, time to prove myself - Jiwuaku Linda reacts to Falconet call up

Linda Jiwuaku has revealed that it is a dream come true for her to be called for the Nigeria U-20 national team.

NAIRA SPORTS reports that Head Coach Christopher Musa Danjuma called up goalkeepers Faith Omilana and Linda Jiwuaku, defenders Jumoke Alani and Tumininu Adeshina, midfielders Taiwo Afolabi, Chinyere Kalu and Chidera Okenwa, and forwards Chiamaka Okwuchukwu, Yina Adoo and Opeyemi Ajakaye among a roster of 30 Falconets for next month’s 2024 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup qualifying fixture against the U20 girls of Tanzania.

Following the withdrawal of Mauritius from the second-round attrition with Nigeria, the 2022 World Cup quarter-finalists drew a bye to the third round, where Tanzania await, with the first leg away in Dar es Salaam on a date within 10th– 12th November and the return leg in Abuja on a date within 17th – 19th November.

Danjuma has picked a few of his World Cup quarter-finalists from Costa Rica last year, and an impressive number from the Flamingos squad that won the bronze medals at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in India a year ago.

The invited players have been told to report at the Chida Hotel in Utako, Abuja on Sunday, 22nd October.

Reacting to the call up, Linda told NAIRA SPORTS that it is time for her to prove herself in the national team.

“Honestly is a dream come through is left for me to go and prove my self, ” she told NAIRA SPORTS
