The Nigeria U-17 Women’s team, the Flamingos are very much on course to qualify for the World Cup billed for Jordan later this year after they hammered their South African counterparts 6-0 at the Abuja National Stadium on Saturday, in their final round, first leg qualifier.
The Flamingos scored all six goals in Saturday’s encounter in the first half to now hold a healthy lead going into the second leg billed for South Africa in a fortnight.
Four goals from the total tally came from the boots of Captain Rasheedat Ajibade and the other two came from Yetunde Fajobi.
