The Flamingoes celebrating after their victory

Former Super Falcons' coach, Rolandson Odeh said Flamingoes' massive win against hosts, Azerbaijan at the Fifa Under17 Women's World Cup showed the team's resolve to clinch the world title.
Flamingoes went goal crazy and hit hosts, Azerbaijan 11-0 on Matchday Two at the Lankaran Stadium on Tuesday with striker, Chinwendu Ihezuo scoring five while Halimatu Ayinde and Tessy Biahwo netted a brace respectively.
Aminat Yakubu and substitute, Joy Bokiri scored one each to complete the goal feast.
Odeh said the Nigerians must keep their foot on the throttle against Colombia in the last group game this weekend.

"Flamingoes have shown themselves to be a team not ready to return home empty-handed.
"I see them surpassing their quarterfinal finish two years ago and good enough the same coach Peter Dedevbo is still in charge.
"The game against Azerbaijan was a huge improvement compared with the tie against Canada where they created chances without converting many of them.
"The team are on the right path to emerging top of their group, I advise the coach to study the tie between Colombia and Canada and note the lapses and approach the last game with measured sense of modesty.
"The players must be attack conscious, show no complacency and take their chances at goal.
"Victory will rubbish whatever becomes the outcome of the tie between Azerbaijan and Canada.
"But I must congratulate the team for a wonderful game against the hosts," the former Rivers Angels' coach told
Nigeria lead Group A on four points same as Canada but with superior goals followed by Colombia on three points and Azerbaijan at the rear with no point.
The Flamingoes need at least a draw against Colombia to head to the last eight.
