    Nigeria 1-1 China. Nigeria qualify for the q-final. It was a second half display of power from the girls with the coaches out shouting the Chinese coach from the sideline. Oya o, Mr Sports Minister $10000 quickquite for the girls. Again let those who are criticizing the coach for shouting too much should apologize or else just stop it. U will recommend that he should shout even more in the q-final in all the WaZoBia languages as it worked out for the team. Well done girls and coaching staff.
