Namibia women's U-17 coach, Melvin Mbakera, has accused the Nigeria U-17 team – the Flamingoes of fielding overage players.
The Flamingoes thrashed Namibia 4-0 in the first leg of the FIFA Women's U-17 World Cup qualifier on Saturday in Abuja.
Mbakera,,speaking via Brila FM, described it as unfair on football.
"The game between U-23 players against U-17 players," Mbakera said of his team's loss to Nigeria's Flamingoes.
"This is not fair and this is the reason why most countries don't want to play in the U-17."
He added:"Nigeria's first goal was brilliant, but their three other goals were as a result of our players errors."
Namibia will hope to overturn the 4-0 first leg deficit when they host the Flamingoes in the reverse fixture in Windhoek.
