Musa congratulates the Flamingos with the sum of 3m

Nigerian professional footballer and the super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has gifted Nigeria’s U-17 women’s national team the Flamingos N3m for winning the bronze medal at the U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.

Nigeria triumphed over Germany 3-2 via penalties in the third-place match after full-time score ended 3-3 in Mumbai on Sunday.

“The sum of three million waiting for Flamingos in Abuja.Congratulations,” Musa tweeted, while celebrating Flamingos’ historic achievement.

This triumph for Nigeria made them the second African side to have achieved the feat. Ghana clinched the bronze medal at the 2012 edition of the tournament.

Flamingos scored first and were up 3-0 before the Germans staged a dramatic comeback late on to tie the loser’s final 3-3.

Blessing Sunday, Etim and Player-of-The-Match Ajakaye all scored from the spot for Flamingos but defender Tumininu Adeshina’s miss did not matter as Pauliner Bartz fluffed the vital kick for Germany.
