No team can beat us – Flamingos defender, Miracle Usani Boasts

Flamingos of Nigeria defender Miracle Usani, has boasted that no team can defeat Nigeria at the ongoing FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.

Usani has assured Flamingos fans that the team can overcome any side at the tournament after their penalty shoot-out victory over the United States on Friday.

Nigeria beat tournament favourites USA 4-3 on penalties after full-time ended 1-1 with Usani converting one of the Flamingos’ spot kicks, but not without some drama.

Usani fell on the pitch in tears after she saw her penalty saved by Valentina Amaral, but she got a second chance after VAR adjudged Amaral to have stepped off her line before making the save, which meant Usani had to a second chance to retake the penalty.

Much to her relief and that of millions of Nigerians back home, Usani converted from the spot as Nigeria advanced to the semi-finals of the competition for the first time since inception in 2008.

The Nigeria team will face South American side Colombia on Wednesday by 12pm in Goa.
