Nigeria’s U17 girls, Flamingos on Wednesday spent time with a care home in Abuja, during which they delivered a message of hope and gift items to the children. As ambassadors of goodwill, they sought to uplift the spirits of the children and spread joy, underscoring the true essence of sports beyond the field.

Their visit not only made the day of the young residents but also fostered a sense of community and compassion, illustrating the power of sport to unite and inspire. Addressing the kids, assistant coach Adanna Nwaneri said: “You can be the next person in these jerseys (Nigeria kits) representing the country and making us proud on the international stage.”

The Flamingos departed Abuja for Bamako, Mali on Thursday morning aboard an Air Cote d’Ivoire flight. They will take on their Burkinabe counterparts at the Stade 26 March on Saturday, in the first leg of a FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup third round qualifying fixture.
