Bantwana Thumped By Nigeria's Flamingoes

South Africa’s u17 Women’s National team was on the receiving end of a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Nigeria on Saturday.

Maud Khumalo's charges have now massive task of turning over a six-goal deficit in the second leg, if they have any hope of securing their spot at the U17 FIFA World Cup.

Nigeria captain, Busayo Ajibade netted four goals, while Atinuke Fajobi contributed with two of her own, with all six goals coming in the opening half.

The second leg encounter will take place on March 26th at the Makhulong Stadium, with the game scheduled to get underway at 14h00.

Bantwana head coach, Maud Khumalo, felt her charges gave the Flamingoes too much respect.

“This was always going to be a tough ask of the girls considering they haven’t played an international match up to this stage, but such is football," Khumalo said after the game.

“I believe we gave the Nigerians too much respect in the first half. We also had a lapse in concentration and lack to communication in the first half but in the second half we played to our strengths.

“We showed that we can hold them and with more practice, we believe we have what it takes to do better in the second leg."
