The delegation of Nigeria’s U17 Women National Team, Flamingoes, flew into Jordan on Tuesday morning aboard an Emirates Airline flight from Dubai. The contingent had flown out of Abuja aboard another Emirates Airline flight on Monday night.

The 32 –member delegation comprising of 21 players, 9 Officials, NFF Assistant Technical Director, Abdulrafiu Yusuf and Head of Women Football, Ruth David were on board the same Emirates Airline flight from Dubai with Group C opponents, Korea Democratic People’s Republic. The airplane landed at the Queen Alia International Airport, Amman at 9.25am Jordan time on Tuesday.

The Nigeria delegation was received Head of Chancery, Nigerian Embassy, Abdulhamid Aminu and Ernest Orogun, the Communications Officer, as well as members of the Local Organizing Committee of the 5th FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup. The players and officials later left for Le Royal Hotels and Resorts, Amman where they are lodged.

The Flamingoes will resume training on Wednesday. The three –time quarter finalists will play their opener against Brazil on Nigeria’s Independence Day (1st October) by 4pm Jordan time (2pm Nigeria), before games against England and Korea DPR at the Amman International Stadium. It is worthy of note that only 22 seconds were on the clock at New Zealand 2008 when Nigeria's Soo Adekwagh scored not only the fastest goal in the history of the FIFA U17 Women's World Cup, but in any FIFA women's competition.
