Flamingoes head coach, Bala Nkiyu has said his side achieved a milestone at the 2014 Fifa Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica despite bowing out in the quarterfinals of the competition to Spain.

The Nigerians were beaten 0-3 by the European giants in the quarterfinals making it the third consecutive time the cadet side failed to go beyond the last eight.

Bala said the side made bold progress winning all their group matches for the first time in the history of the championship.

“We made progress in Costa Rica even though we were eliminated in the quarterfinals as it was the case in the past two editions but for the first time in the history of the side’s participation in the championship we were able to win all our group matches.
