FIFA U/17| Flamingos to Face USA in Quarter final with Win over Chile

Nigeria’s FIFA U-17 Women’s side, the Flamingos, booked their place in the quarter final of the World Cup ongoing in India with a 2-1 win over Chile.

Goals from Blessing Emmanuel and Bisola Mosaku were enough to see off the South Americans at the Kalinga Stadium, despite a late penalty converted by Roverner Tali.

Bankole Olowookere, the team’s coach said of their missed chances after the game, “We missed a number of chances again, but I like the spirit of the team and we will get better as we go on in the competition. I am happy we made it into the last eight, and that we sustained our winning mentality despite the fact that we only needed a draw to sail through.”

The Flamingos will now face the USA in the quarter finals on Friday.
