Nigeria’s Flamingoes defeated Colombia 2-1 to claim a place in the quarter-finals of the 2014 Fifa Women’s Under-17 World Cup going on in Costa Rica.

Goals from Joy Bokiri and Uchenna Kanu helped Nigeria come back from a goal down to clinching victory, after the Colombians had taken the lead in the third minute through Angie Rodriguez.

The win put paid to the South Americans’ hopes of reaching the last-eight of the competition after previous 4-0 loss to Mexico, who now advance into the next round of the competition alongside Nigeria, with the qualified duo set for a final group tie to decide the group winner.

Mexico had earlier on Thursday sealed their quarter-final berth with a 4-0 win over China PR.
