Flamingos Qualify For FIFA U17 World Cup In Dominican Republic 


Nigeria’s Flamingos have qualified for the World Cup in Dominican Republic after beating Liberia 2-0 in Abuja and 6-1 on aggregate.

Chidi Harmony scored both goals in Abuja, taking her tally in the qualifiers to 13 goals.

Recall that Nigeria won the first leg 4-1 in Monrovia on Sunday, with 11-goal qualifying series revelation Harmony Chidi, Shakirat Moshood, Peace Effiong and substitute Blessing Ifitezue banging in the goals for the Flamingos.

The hosts got their consolation goal off a penalty awarded with five minutes left of the encounter at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville.

With this result, the Super Falcons qualified for the Olympics, the Falconets qualified for the World Cup and now the Flamingos have marked 3/3 for the ladies.

They featured at the inaugural edition in New Zealand in 2008, and subsequently at Trinidad and Tobago 2010, Azerbaijan 2012, Costa Rica 2014, Jordan 2016 and India 2022, where they won the bronze medals.
