NFF President Aminu Maigari has told Nigeria's World Cup-bound U-17 Women’s Team, the Flamingoes he expects them to win the trophy later this year in Azerbaijan.

The Flamingoes, who qualified for the World Cup after a 7-1 aggregate win over Zambia, fell to eventual champions Korea at the quarter finals last time, and Maigari is determined to see them push even farther this year

“The NFF is very happy with the qualification of the U-17 Women National Team for this year’s FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup finals," he said. "That is the beginning of good things to come for Nigeria football this year and in the coming years.

“Now, it is our prerogative to ensure that the team is fully andadequately prepared for the tournament in Azerbaijan.

"At the last tournament in Trinidad and Tobago, our girls got to the quarter finals, and only lost to eventual champions Korea Republic after extra time. This year, we must go farther, and perhaps win the trophy," said the NFF president.

Last Saturday, the Flamingoes routed their counterparts from Zambia 5-0 for a 7-1 aggregate win, to qualify as one of Africa’s three representatives at the World Cup in Azerbaijan.
