Amodu challenges Flamingos to crush Bantwana

11 March 2016, 15:27Israel Ojoko

Abuja - The National Technical Director, Shuaibu Amodu, has charged the U-17 National Women Team, Flamingos, to remain focused on the game against South Africa on Saturday and get the required result that will render the second leg a mere formality.

The Flamingos will host the first leg of the final round of the FIFA U-17 World Cup qualifier against the Bantwana of South Africa, at the main bowl of the Abuja National Stadium on Saturday, March 12 starting from 4pm.

Amodu, a four-time Super Eagles Head Coach, challenged the players when he attended the team's training session in Abuja. While encouraging the girls to continue their impressive performances that got them to the final round of the qualification, especially the 9-0 aggregate mauling of the Baby Gladiators of Namibia, Amodu told the girls that the future is in their hands and they should maximise all their opportunities.

"I encourage and thank you on behalf of the Nigeria Football Federation for all the sacrifices you have made. We have heard reports of your discipline and dedication, and all I have to add now is for you not to relent. Try and sustain the discipline and also to be determined that every team that comes across you would be crushed. The Federation will continue to fully support the team to achieve greater height.”

Captain Rasheedat Ajibade thanked the National Technical Director for the visit and once again promised that the team will not let the country down.

“We will do everything to qualify for the FIFA World Cup in Jordan.”

Only three spots are been reserved for Africa at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan. The other qualifiers to be decided this weekend will see the Ghana facing Morocco while Cameroon take on Egypt. Nigeria has featured in all previous editions of the World Cup since it began in 2008.
