Nigeria Seal First Ever FIFA Under Seventeen Women World Cup Semifinal Ticket

Nigeria’s Flamingos for the first have qualified for the semi final of the FIFA Under 17 women’s world cup in India.

In today’s first quarter final game, the Nigerian girls beat their opponents from the United States of America 4-3 on penalties after 1-1 in normal time.

Edafe Omamuzo put Nigeria 1nil up from the penalty spot in the 20th minute while the Americans equalised on 40 minutes to drag the game into penalty shootout.

After the Americans had missed two kicks with Nigeria losing one, Omamuzo stepped up to score the winning penalty that sent Flamingos into Wednesday’s semi final where either Colombia or Tanzania lie in wait.
