San Jose - Flamingoes midfielder, Joy Bokiri says she is
glad and full of joy scoring a goal to recover Nigeria's hope of playing in the
quarter-final at the on-going FIFA U17 World Cup in Costa Rica.

the valuable equalizer that the African giants needed for revival against Colombia,
before Uchenna Kanu ensured the Flamingoes were through with a 59th minute
header on Wednesday in Alajuela.
"I feel very happy despite the fact that this was my
second game and I score my first goal. I am very happy to equalizer for
Nigeria," she expressed.
Despite being aware of the exploit of Group D leaders, the
Nigeria forward backed the Flamingoes to emerge victorious in the top of the table
decider against Mexico in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.
"I'm looking forward to the next match -I believe we
are going to win the next match, despite the fact that the Mexicans defeated
Colombia - I believe football is no man's game and a game of luck," she insisted.
The Flamingoes’ train moves to the 34,453-capacity Sabana
Stadium where they will meet Mexico by 8pm on Sunday, which is 3am Nigerian time
