How Flamengoes pound Azerbaijan 11- 0

Nigeria’s Under-17
squad the Flamengoes,
ran riot yesterday and
whipped the hosts of
the FIFA Under-17
women world cup
Azerbaijan, with 11
thumping goals.
Chinwendu Ihezuo was
the tormentor in chief
as she scored five of
the goals which left the
young Azerbaijan
women reeling with
dis may and disbelief
as they crashed out of
the tournament having
lost to Colombia in
their opening game.

is congratulated by
team-mate Ugochi
Emenayo after scoring
her side’s eleventh
goal during the FIFA
U-17 Women’s World
Cup Group A match
between Azerbaijan
and Nigeria at

It was clear that the
hosts were no match
for the Nigerian girls
who had physical
advantage and right
from the opening
moments of the game,
the Nigerian girls
pinned their opponents
to their own half and
handed them a
thorough bashing,
which seem like a
revenge for Africa after
Gambia suffered a
similar 11-0
whitewash in the
hands of North Korea.
Ihezuo opened scoring
in the 5th minute after
she tapped in Madel
Effiom’s cross that
bounced off the cross
bar. Three minutes
later it was 2-0, Oluchi
Ofoebu squaring from
inside the box to see
Halimatu Ayinde
squeeze her first under
Aytaj Sharifova.
Ayinde then made one
and scored her second,
lay the first on for
Aminat Yakubu before
Ihezuo turned provide.
Ihezuo then doubled
own tally, Yakubu
crossing for her to put
in at the far post.
Ayinde missed the
chance to complete her
hat-trick when missing
an untended goal, but
her pass on 37 minutes
saw Ihezuo complete
The tune didn’t change
after half-time, Ihezuo
netting her fourth after
Ebere Okoye’s neat
Substitute Joy Bokiri
then got in on the act,
converting Ayinde’s
Ihezuo got her fifth,
rising to head Biahwo’s
deep free-kick, before
roles reversed as the
midfielder curled an
effort into the bottom
corner for the final
Nigeria now top group
A with 4 points, tipping
Canada to the second
spot with the
overwhelming goals
advantage. Canada
beat Colombia 1-0 and
they will face the hosts,
while Nigeria need a
win or draw against
Colombia on Saturday
to be assured of a
quarter-final ticket.
