FIFA U-17 Female World Cup: Mabo, Akpokona Rue Nigeria’s Exit


Former Super Falcons’ Chief coach, Ismaila Mabo, and ex-coach of Rangers International of Enugu, Lawrence Akpokona, have voiced their disappointment over the early exit of Nigeria’s Flamingoes from the FIFA U-17 Female World Cup, in New Zealand.

Former Super Falcons’ Chief coach, Ismaila Mabo, and ex-coach of Rangers International of Enugu, Lawrence Akpokona, have voiced their disappointment over the early exit of Nigeria’s Flamingoes from the FIFA U-17 Female World Cup, in New Zealand.

The Nigerian ladies played a 2-2 draw with Brazil in their last group match yesterday, but this could not see them through to the quarter-final of the inaugural FIFA U-17 Female World Cup.

Mabo said: “The girls did their best, but it was not good enough to take them to the next stage. I know that Nigerians will feel disappointed with the ouster. It was quite unfortunate.”

Akpokona described the exit as an avoidable scenario if the Flamingoes had been technically sound. He added that the ladies lost the battle to qualify for the quarter final in their second group game against England where they lost 0-1 to the English ladies. He urged Nigerians to put sentiments aside and face the reality that the Flamingoes were technically deficient in the competition.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
