With just hours to go before Nigeria’s first leg under-17 women’s world cup qualifier against Egypt in Abuja, some of the Flamingos' key players have come out to say they are very well primed for the encounter. “We have been having great training sessions and we have learnt a lot of great (and exciting) stuff,” said Captain Dah Zossu Alvine. "As a result, fans can expect the best from us and good football. We promise to make Nigeria proud,” she concluded. The Flamingos showed pitiless savagery in the previous round of qualifiers by crushing Congo a whooping 8:0 across two legs. Now they promise to continue producing such scintillating performances. “We are very ready to face the Egyptians, to play good football and to bag our points,” said Taiwo Afolabi as her colleague Opeyemi Ajakaiye promises a hail of goals against the North Africans. “I promise nothing but my best and to crown it with more goals,” said Ajakaiye who has three goals from the last match. The brand of football played by the Flamingos in the last round was compelling, romantic and captivating.
The way they caressed the ball and work their way smoothly into delicate opposition areas were a delight to watch. They were cool, calm and collected in their all round play and they played their game like a strategy-driven game of chess. And with what the players said, fans can expect more of that sexy and sumptuous brand of football against Egypt and beyond.
