SAD! Nigeria Lose World Cup Ticket To Cameroon
The Nigeria U-17 Women's team, the Flamingos will only be watching the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup on their tv screens after they failed to qualify for the tournament on Sunday.
It is the very first time in the history of FIFA U-17 Women's World
Cup that Nigeria will be not be participating as they were beaten to the ticket on
Sunday by their Cameroonian counterparts.
The Flamingos who played out a 2-2 draw in their first leg tie could only muscle out a 1-1 draw in Sunday's second leg clash in Yaounde and that development meant they were edged out on the away goals' rule.
Before, Sunday's outcome, Nigeria has qualified for all the previous FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup.
The Flamingos were part of the inaugural party in New Zealand in 2008 and also featured at 2010 (Trinidad and Tobago), 2012 (Azerbaijan), 2014 (Costa Rica) and 2016 (Jordan) editions.
Coach Bala Nikyu who could not qualify the team this term coached the Flamingos at the two last editions of the FIFA World Cup.
