A Tanzanian fan has pleaded with the Flamingos of Nigeria to beat the Colombian ladies as a way of avenging their defeat at the hands of the Americans.

Colombian ladies were victorious on Saturday when they exchanged tackles with Tanzania's women in the ongoing U-17 World Cup Tournament.

Colombia which finished as runner-up in the U-17 CONMEBOL Championship has already had its best run in the tournament, making it past the group stage and will face Nigeria next, in the semifinal.

Colombia beat a nine-member Tanzania 3-0 in the quarterfinals of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup at the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Margoa, on Saturday.

With the win, its dream redemption in the tournament – following four successive group stage exits, including that in 2018 – continues.

But the Tanzanian fan however said in an online report: "The only way our anger for our opponents (Columbia) will be appeased is if the Flamingos beat them on their next match day."

She told NPFL Updates: “Colombia is a tough opposition, but I believe the West African ladies will get a better part of them. I wish them well, and our prayers are with them," she added.
