Flamingoes hold Belgium to goalless draw in friendly

05 March 2014, 17:36Israel Ojoko

Brussels – Nigeria’s national U17 women’s team extended their unbeaten run in preparation for the 2014 FIFA U17 women World Cup in Costa Rica after they played out a goalless draw against Belgium in an international friendly in Brussels, Belgium.

The Flamingoes who had tough game against the Belgian side failed to get a goal for the first time in their last nine high-profile friendly matches at the Alles Des Sports Stadium.

The game came days after the Nigerian girls ran riot in a rout of Clube Benfica in Lisbon, with a brace from Cynthia Aku and individual efforts from Rasheedat Ajibade and Chinwendu Ihezuo.

Belgium's U-17 girls also made several attempts to register a goal against the Nigerian side but met a brick wall in the defence line of Ologbosere Mary, Emenayo Ugochi Anibaba Ayominde and Mene Augusta.

Earlier in the game, the best chance came in the first half where Captain Tessy Biahwo's winning goal potential from a penalty spot, turned another miss for both shared the spoil with no victor, no vanquish at regulation time.

The African representative have recorded three wins and a draw in four warm-up games.
