Nigeria U17 send Women's World Cup qualifier warning to Guinea with Abuja Queens win

The Flamingoes are scheduled to face Guinea in the first round of the qualifying series next month and squared up against the Jos-based youth side to test their readiness after a two-week camp.

In their first friendly, Bankole Olowokere's ladies defeated U15 Mees Palace Academy 3-2 thanks to a brace from Yemisi Samuel and Chukwulem Kelechi at the Fifa Goal Project pitch, Abuja a week ago.
