Nigeria's U-17 women’s football national team, the Flamingoes, have arrived Windhoek, Namibia ahead of their 2016 World Cup qualifier against the host country on Friday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The match at the Sam Nujoma Stadium, starting from 4pm Namibia time (3pm Nigeria time).
Bala Nkiyu's team defeated the Namibians 4-0 in the first leg and are on course for qualification to the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Jordan.

Falcons goalkeeper stated.
The Flamingoes led by coach Bala Nikyu flew aboard a South African Airways airplane from Lagos to Johannesburg before connecting another South African Airways flight to Windhoek, on Wednesday morning.
