Former Super Eagles coach, Augustine Eguavoen, has hailed Nigeria’s Under 17 team, also known as the Flamingos for qualifying for the semi-finals of this year’s FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

DAILY POST reports that goalkeeper Faith Omilana proved her class as the Flamingos sailed into the semi-finals at the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup following a 4-3 penalty shootout win against the United States of America at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

It is the first time the Flamingos would make it to the semi-final of the competition.

The match ended in a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes with Omilana making a number of crucial saves to keep the Flamingos in the mix.

The 16-year-old shot-stopper also saved two penalties to help the Flamingos beat the Americans.

Reacting, Eguavoen, in a tweet via his Twitter handle, backed the Flamingos to go all the way to the final.

“Massive well done to the girls for a well-deserved victory against one of the best Nations in women’s football. Hats off to Coach Bankole as well,” Eguavoen tweeted.

“We’re going all the way!.”
