Flamingoes defeat Nasarawa Amazons in friendly

20 February 2014, 13:30Israel Ojoko

Abuja - With less than a month to the U-17 World Cup for women in Costa Rica, the Nigerian team has intensified preparations with a 2-0 victory over the country’s women league champions, Nasarawa Amazons.

The game was a friendly match played in Abuja.

Goals from Uche Kanu and Onyebuchi Goodness in separate halves handed the Faro-bound girls the victory in the tie played at the FIFA Goal Project Centre.

Uche Kanu secured the lead in the 7th minute and later saw several attempts on goal off target in the first half with Aminat and Chiwnedu both recording a miss.

Nasarawa Amazons failed to find a breakthrough for an equalizer as the resilient Nigeria Flamingoes sealed up their defensive line. 

Unfortunately, the Hamza Abdullahi-led women lost hope when Onyebuchi Goodness fired home to make it 2-0 for the Flamingoes.

The 2-0 victory over the Amazons became the second for the Flamingoes after an earlier 2-1 victory in Lafia during their Federation tour.
