FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Falconets crash out losing 2-1 to Spain
Nigeria’s Falconets have been eliminated from the ongoing 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup after 2-1 defeat by Spain in their quarterfinal clash on Thursday at the Stade Guy Piriou in Concarneau, France.
Spanish team seized control of the encounter with their consistent penetrative passing of the ball from side to side working the Falconets up and down the pitch.
Spain scored their second goal of the game just before the referee blew the whistle for the half time break through Patri Guijarro.
The Falconets could not get an equalising goal to force the game to extra time as they crashed out of the competition.
Spain progress to the semifinals where they will face the winners of the France vs Japan quarterfinal fixture
