Flamingoes resume training for Costa Rica 2014
The Nigeria U17 women team will resume training on Monday with Costa Rica 2014 Women’s World Cup on their horizon.
Flamingoes handled by Bala Nkiyu and Anne Chijiene broke camp due to the Christmas and New Year holidays. They will regroup in Abuja to sharpen their skills and await the run out of the year.
They are expected to play series of friendly matches against some top clubs in the Nigeria Women Premier League, before embarking on a training tour.
According to sources close to futbalgalore.blogspot.com, Pelican Stars have a large contingent with seven players invited for the exercise.
The 2014 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup will be hosted by Costa Rica.
Flamingoes were twice eliminated in the quarter finals stage of the 2010 and 2012 edition. They qualified for the 2014 tourney after South Sudan withdrew and failed to honour their obligation.
