Nigeria crashes out of 2016 FIFA U-17 Women World Cup in Jordan, scores no goal in Tourney (PHOTOS)

African Champions. Nigeria U-17 Women football team known as "The Flamingoes" has crashed out of the on-going 2016 FIFA U-17 Women World Cup in Jordan without scoring a single goal after they were beaten 3-0 by North Korea. Ri Hae Yon scored a hat-trick for the North Koreans. Nigeria finished bottom of Group C (Group of Death) behind
North Korea (1st), England (2nd) and Brazil (3rd).

This could be the worst ever performance by Nigeria at International competition after they lost 1-0 to Brazil in their first Group C, followed by a goalless draw with England before loosing scandalously to the North Koreans.
Coach Bala Nikyu

Coach of the Nigeria team Bala Nikyu said the players did started well but lacked experience, looks unmotivated and lethargic. 
Cameroon, Ghana and Nigeria were the three teams representing Africa at the competition but only Ghana went through to the quarter-final while Nigeria and Cameroon crashed out.
