Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi ,Nigeria’s Minister of Sports and Chairman of the National Sports Commission has charged Nigeria’s Under-17 Women’s football team The Flamingos to go all out for victory in their quarter final match against France tomorrow.
The Minister urged the team to remain consistent and maintain the form, which saw them defeat their last two opponents in the preliminary round by wide goal margins. The girls had beaten host Azerbaijan by 11 goals to nil and Colombia by 3-0.
“They have been very impressive so far; very fast, good dribbling skills and decisive in front of goal. If they maintain that form and do not make careless mistakes, I’m sure they are going to come out of the game victorious.
“I urge the girls to remain focus. And confident of the fact that Nigerians everywhere support the team and are wishing them well,” Abdullahi said.
