In the Malabo Stadium, the Women's Nzalang Under-20 will begin to play for the qualification to the Women's Under-20 World Cup Canada 2014. The national team has an intensive pace of work, directed by Juan Micha and all the team's coaching staff, to obtain the best conditions for this match.

The Women's Nzalang Under-20 will play this momentous match with their classic 4-3-3 formation, in which the player Esther will once again have a major role in her midfield position. For the coach, Juan Micha: "The important thing is to win and not letting the opponent score. The more goals we score, the better, since we want to travel to Ghana with a result that gives us confidence."

The Ghanaian team is one of the most powerful on the continent and Micha is aware of the difficulty of getting a good result. "The national team of Ghana have a high level and we have great respect for the team, but we will try to get a good result, which could be 2-0," he said.

Although the lineup is set, the coach clearly knows which players will go onto the pitch: "We've been working a long time with a base group and this will be the ones will start the lineup. On Saturday we will decide the final lineup, in case we have to make any changes due to injury or last minute problems."

The return leg will be played in the capital, Accra, the weekend of January 25, and from that match will come the team that will ultimately make the trip to the World Cup in Canada.
