Falconets Knocked out of U20 World Cup

Nigeria’s U-20 Women’s football team, the Falconets, have crashed out of FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup after losing 2-1 to Spain in the quarterfinal match Thursday evening.

Spain’s captain A. Bonmati put the Europeans ahead in the 13th minute before P. Guijarro doubled their lead in the 45th minute of a one-sided first half.

But the Falconets, who needed a last-gasp goal to make the knockout rounds, rallied round to reduce the tally on the 57th minute through Peace Efih.

Despite their brave efforts to get the leveller, the two-time finalists fell short as the Europeans held on to push through to the semi-finals.
