The Nigerian women’s cadet team and their Chilean counterpart will go head-to-head on Monday in one of the final Group B matches of the ongoing 2022 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in India, Abbeylivenetwork.com reports.
The Flamingos defeated New Zealand 4-0 in their second group game at the ongoing 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.
It was a much-needed victory for the Flamingos after a 2-1 loss to European Champions Germany to start the tournament.
The Flamingos are now second in group B after two games played but need a positive result in their final fixture against Chile if they are to progress to the knockout stages of the competition.
Nigeria and Chile met for the first and only time at this level at the 2010 World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Africans dispatched the South Americans with little trouble: 5-0, it ended inside the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar, Arima. Loveth Ayila (hat-trick), Francisca Ordega, and Ngozi Okobi-Okeoghene were Nigeria’s goal-scorers on the day.
Chile have not been to the cadet World Cup since that edition, while Nigeria have missed only one since the tournament’s inception.
