Even though it came in a hard way, Nigeria’s Flamingoes finally secured a bronze in the 2022 U17 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Goals from Opeyemi Ajakaiye, Aminat Bello, and Etim Edidong gave Nigeria a lead-up to the 63rd minute of the game.
But they proved why they are the European champions as they rallied back and scored 3 goals in the final 15 minutes through Viet, Paulina, and Loreen Bender.
The game was stretched into penalty shoot-out again where Flamingoes secured a 3-2 win to smile home with Bronze.
The penalty shoot-out in the 3rd place made it the third time Flamingoes we play a penalty shoot-out in the same tournament.
