All 32 matches of the 2018 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup will be broadcasted live on DStv and GOtv and across SuperSport’s online and digital platforms. The biannual tournament kicks off on 5 August, giving hosts France an opportunity to celebrate a second world football title in the space of two months, following the men’s victory in Russia last month.
The feat has only been achieved by Germany which, in 2014, won the FIFA World and the Women’s U20 World Cup months later. Home advantage and a runner-up finish in the last edition of the tournament make the French team genuine title contenders. Once again, Africa’s hopes rest with Nigeria and Ghana.
The Falconets and Black Princesses have been Africa’s representatives in the last four tournaments with the Falconets finishing as runners-up twice in 2010 and 2014.
