Flamingos head coach, Bankole Olowookere has said his players are prepared from the day the Flamingos qualified for the semi-final to battle for a win against Colombia at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

The Nigerian girls will battle with the South Americans today at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Goa.

The Flamingos are looking to further create history in the competition by making it to the final.

The West Africans made it to the semi-final for the first time after edging out United States of America 4-3 on penalties in the quarter-final last week Friday.

Olowookere insisted that they are determined to go further in the competition by securing a place in the final.

“We are fully ready right from the day we qualified and I believed we will achieve our aim,” Olowookere said ahead of the clash against the South Americans.

“And to achieve that we must beat the Colombians and we are doing everything to make it possible, he said”.

The game will kick-off at 12pm Nigeria time.
