Nigeria’s Flamingoes crash out of World Cup


Nigeria’s Women U-17 team, Flamingoes, have been sent packing from the ongoing FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup taking place in Jordan.

Korea DPR thrashed the Flamingoes 3-0 on Saturday to confirm the exit of the Nigerian ladies.

The 2016 Flamingoes set are the worst ever assembled as the team could only muster a point from three games, and failed to score a goal in over 270 minutes of football action.

The Flamingoes were beaten 1-0 in their first game by Brazil before playing a barren draw against England.

Only a victory on Saturday would have helped the chances of the Flamingoes but the team was no match for the Asian champions who finished top of the group.

England also joined Korea DPR in the quarter finals after beating Brazil 2-1 on Saturday.

    Please, do not dis-regard the girls, their Head coach failed them in every level.

    As you can remember that, i have been saying it time without number since i came to know the coach, Bala Nikuyi, is never a coach to handle our national team. just like the former Super Falcon coach OKON.

    NFF, is employing whoever that bribe them with money, they will give you any position without considering it, if you knows it or not.
