FIFA U-17 Women World Cup: Flamingoes bow to Spain

Spain this morning kicked Nigeria out of the ongoing FIFA U-17 Women World Cup with a 3-0 spanking in the quarter-final of the tournament. Guijarron gave the Europeans the lead from the penalty spot in the early minutes of the encounter, after Ugochi Emenayo fouled Andrea Falcon in the area. They doubled their lead through Nahikari Garcia, who latched on to Dominguez’s through ball and slotted the ball past Onyinyechukwu Okeke. With 20 minutes left, it was three. Okeke failed to handle a fierce effort from Sandra Hernandez and Guijarron stabbed in the rebound. The result made sure that Nigeria would never make it past the quarterfinal stage of the competition once more. The Nigerian Flamingoes were tipped for great things following their impressive performances at the group stage of the competition before giving in to a more rampant Spanish side. Spain will go on to play Italy in the last four of the competition.
