Nigeria’s Flamingos have beat the US on Friday to reach their first-ever semi-final at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

The Flamingos won 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes of regulation time.

Onamuzo Edafe gave Nigeria the lead just after 25 minutes. A VAR review had confirmed a foul on Amina Bello with the referee wasting no time in pointing to the spot.

The Americans pilled pressure on the Nigerians and were rewarded just before half-time. They equalized in the 40th minute through Amalia Martina Villarreal’s strike.

Both teams started the second half trying to get a second goal but it never came resulting in a penalty shootout to decide who goes into the semi-final.
