Nigeria U17 Women crash out of World Cup

It was a dissppointing performance by the Flamingoes of Nigeria as they got knocked out of the  U17 World Cup when they were beaten 3-0 by North Korea Saturday in a final Group C match.

Striker Ri Hae Yon plundered a hat-trick to book Nigeria’s flight back home.

The Flamingoes, captained by Rasheedat Ajibade in her second U17 World Cup, were never really in this contest.

Nigeria failed to score a goal in their three matches and managed only a goalless draw with England to finish on a solitary point.

The Flamingoes, who reached the quarterfinals in the last three editions of the competition, suffered from lack of international exposure as they did not play any international warm-up before Jordan 2017.
