The reversed fixture of the international friendly match between the U-20 women national teams of Ghana and Nigeria scheduled for Accra on Thursday will hold as planned.
NFF board member, Dilichukwu Onyedinma confirmed this information to SuperSport.com on Wednesday.
Fears emerged that the match may be cancelled following the sudden death on Tuesday of Ghanaian president, Prof John Atta Mills of cardiac attack.
"We have just been informed by the Ghana FA that the game will still be played on Thursday," said Onyedinma.
Falconets lost the first fixture played on Tuesday 3-2.
"We have spoken to the girls to forget about the loss and brace up for the Thursday's game which they have promised to win in order to redeem the nation's image," she added.
Matches between both countries at any level irrespective of the team involved have never been taken lightly.
This would be Nigeria's first loss at the age grade category to one of its bitter rivals.
Both countries will be representing Africa at next month's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan.
