U17WWC: Germany gave us good fight — Bankole Olowookere

Nigeria’s U17 Women’s team head coach, Bankole Olowookere was full of praises for Germany after the third place playoff at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup.

Olowookere watched the Germans recover from a three-goal deficit to force penalties in the game at the PY Patil Stadium on Sunday.

The Flamingos took firm control of the match, going three goals up after hour mark, but the European Champions played themselves back into the contest, scoring thrice in the last 30 minutes.

The game was decided via penalty shootout and the Nigerian team held on to win 3-2.

Reviewing the clash, Olowookere said they expected a tough battle from the Germans.

“It was a difficult game, because this is the thing that we need to do before leaving the tournament, we have done all.

“We came into the game, knowing that our opponents are tough and in the end they gave us a good fight but I’m happy we won,” He said.

By winning the Bronze medal, the Flamingos became only the second African team to achieve the feat in the tournament.
