Flamingos thrashes Central African Republic in Women’s World Cup qualifier

Nigeria’s U17 girls, Flamingos have set off on another FIFA World Cup journey with a strong warning to opponents, as they dismissed their counterparts from Central African Republic 6-0 in an African second round, first leg qualification game in Douala, Cameroon on Sunday. 

Harmony Chidi opened the floodgates as early as the 5th minute, and Prisca Nwachukwu doubled Nigeria’s advantage with six minutes left in the first period at the Stade de la Reunification in Cameroon’s second city.

Chidi made it two for herself on the day and three for Nigeria in the 42nd minute, before Shakirat Moshood also got in on the act in the 45th minute with Nigeria’s fourth.

Leading 4-0 at half time, the 2022 FIFA World Cup bronze medallists still refused to lift their feet off the pedal, as Etim Edidiong made it five in the 57th minute, and Shakirat Moshood got her brace in the 72nd minute by making it six for Nigeria.

Central African Republic hosts her international matches in Cameroon, as there is no FIFA-approved stadium for football matches in their own country.

The return leg match will take place at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Friday, 9th February 2024. 

This year’s FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup finals will be staged in the Dominican Republic.
