11 March 2014, 18:09Israel Ojoko

Lisbon - Assistant captain of the Nigeria U17 women national team, Uchenna Kanu believes the Flamingoes can replicate the Golden Eaglets' feat in UAE by winning the FIFA U17 women World Cup in Costa Rica.

Ahead of Nigeria’s trip to Costa Rica on Tuesday, Uchenna expressed confidence that the quality and cooperation in camp will enhance the team's success at the World Cup.

"I believe we can do it this year with the hard work of everyone in training, the mood and performance in friendly matches and also with God on our side, we will bring home the World Cup. If our boys can bring the World Cup to Nigeria, we can also do it because what a man can do, a woman can do also”.

“I don't think any team can stop us from bringing the trophy to Nigeria," Uche added.

The forward of Nigeria Women Premier League side, Pelican Stars however appealed for the support of Nigerians as they are prepared to make the country proud at the World Cup finals in Costa Rica.

"We need the great support of Nigerians and their prayers - and I'm sure we will make them proud. I believe with the usual support of the Nigeria Football Federation, President of the country and all Nigerians, we will bring the trophy to Nigeria," the Flamingoes attacker added.
