Flamingos To Fly Into Monrovia Thursday For U-17 Womens’ World Cup Qualifiers

Nigeria’s U17 girls, the Flamingos, will fly into the Liberian capital, Monrovia, on Thursday ahead of Sunday’s FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup final qualifying fixture, first leg encounter against their Liberian counterparts.

The Flamingos, 2022 World Cup bronze medallists, head into the match on the heels of an aggregate 12-0 win over their counterparts from Central African Republic, and a 7-1 aggregate win over Burkina Faso.

Liberia, who squashed Senegal’s chances to feature in the tournament, face an uphill task against the Flamingos, with Coach Bankole Olowookere insisting that the squad is determined to be in the Dominican Republic to have the opportunity to challenge for the trophy this time around.

Sunday’s match has been slated for the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex at Paynesville, the same venue where the Super Eagles defeated the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone last year to qualify for this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
