U17 Women’s World Cup: Nigeria Defeat New Zealand To Revive Their Hope

Nigeria’s Under 17 Women National Team, Flamingos on Friday punished their New Zealand opponents as they bounced back from their opening game defeat against Germany, thrashing New Zealand 4-0 at the ongoing FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

Goals from Amina Bello, Miracle Usani, Taiwo Afolabi, and Etim Edidiong ensured the Nigerian girls grabbed all three points on the plate in the Indian city of Goa.

Hungry to make amends for the disappointment against Germany, the Nigerian girls went all out for an attack against New Zealand.

The first goal came as early as the 16th minute. The other goals followed in 34th, 75th, and 90th minutes to complete the rout.

The win keeps the Flamingos’ hopes of qualifying for the quarter-final of the tournament alive. They will face Chile in their last group match with a win enough to take them to the quarter-final of the competition.

Earlier, Chile defeated New Zealand 3-1 in their opening group game.
