Bala Nikyu

Nigeria will make it out of a potential tough group in the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan, the Flamingoes’ coach, Bala Nikyu has boasted following the draw in Jordan on Monday that pits his team against Brazil, England and Korea DPR.

Nkiyu considers the Nigeria U-17 side as being good enough for a place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup that holds between September 30 and October.

Nikyu told thenff.com that he sees his team reaching the quarter-final stage of the World Cup.

“The Flamingoes will prepare adequately for the World Cup, and will qualify from the group and surpass previous record of quarter final berth,” Nikyu said.

The Flamingoes will take on Brazil in their opening Group C match at the King Abdullah Stadium on Nigeria’s Independence day, October 1, before facing England on October 4 at the same venue.

The team’s last group game is against Korea DPR on October 8 at the Amman International Stadium.

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will take place in three Jordanian cities of Amman, Irbid and Zarqa between 30th September to 21st October.
