Nigeria’s U17 women’s team took a decisive step towards qualification for the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup later this year, with a 6-1 annihilation of Guinea in the first leg of the second round of qualifying in Conakry on Saturday.

The game was postponed to March 7th due to elections on March 1st in Guinea. The Flamingoes, tutored by coach Olowokere Bankole, got off to a great start by piling up pressure on the Guinea defence and were rewarded early in the game through Chinyere Kalu opened scoring in the 3rd minute, benefitting from a defensive mix-up to slot home.

Yemisi Samuel scored her 9th goal in 5 games for the Flamingos when she unleashed a thunderous volley from a long range.

Shobowale and Yemisi has golden opportunity to increase the scoreline for the dominant Flamingoes but their efforts went wide.

Flamingos' third goal finally came in the 38th minute when Rufiat Imuran scored for the Flamingos following a goal mouth scramble in the box. The Nigerian girls took the lead into the break

In the second half, the hosts came out to play but were soon pegged back by the Flamingos. Rofiat Imuran scored her second of the game in the 65th minute after she was denied by the crossbar some minutes earlier

Guinea pulled one goal back in the 81st minute but Yemisi Samuel was not satisfied yet as she scored her second goal of the evening to make it 1-5

Yemisi Samuel completed her Hat-trick in the first minute of added time, which makes it her 11th goal in 5 matches for the Flamingos, to make the game end 6-1.

This result makes the March 14th return leg at the Agege Stadium little more than a formality for acting head coach Bankole Olowookere’s charges.
