The team’s clinical display saw Amina Bello score twice; the youngster found the back of the net in the 11th and 57th minutes.

Exciting forward Flourish Sabastine also netted a brilliant brace. The former U17 national teamer got her goals in the 12th and 76th minutes.

Esther Chinemerem and Esther Opeyemi Ajakaye were the other goal-scorers for Nigeria.

The resounding 6-0 win solidified Nigeria’s status as a formidable force in the tournament, leaving their opponents in awe of their attacking prowess and ability to convert opportunities ruthlessly.

With their sights firmly set on glory, Nigeria’s relentless pursuit continues as they strive to conquer the WAFU B U-20 Girls Cup of Nations.
