Nigeria U-18 women handball team have qualified for the 2024 Women’s Youth World Handball Championship for the first time in history.

The Nigerian team defeated Morocco 28-14 in Wednesday’s quarter-finals of the 2023 African U-18 Women’s Handball Nations Championship.

The win against Morocco means Nigeria have secured one of the four slots allocated to Africa.

They will also feature in the IHF Women Trophy Intercontinental Phase later this year.

Meanwhile, Nigeria will play Egypt in the semi-finals on Friday at 6:30pm.
