The young Nigerian stars, fresh off a 6-0 triumph in the first leg, continued their relentless attack at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on Friday, Footballrover reports.
The goals flowed freely, with the Flamingos finding the net three times in each half to seal their fate.
Star player Harmony Chidi, already boasting two goals from the first leg, proved unstoppable once again.
She netted a hattrick, including a stunning long-range strike, to spearhead the Nigerian assault.
Kareem Ramota showcased her skills with a delightful lob and a composed finish, while Ojiyovwi Tessy added her name to the scoresheet with a goalmouth scramble effort.
The Flamingos’ dominance was evident from the opening whistle. Chidi’s early strike set the tone, and Nigeria never looked back.
They controlled the tempo, created numerous chances, and converted them with clinical precision.
With this emphatic victory, the Flamingos have set their sights on the next challenge: facing the winner of the Burkina Faso vs. Guinea matchup in the third round.
Their ultimate goal? Lifting the trophy at the 2024 U-17 Women’s World Cup, scheduled for October 16 to November 3 in the Dominican Republic.
