Spain Ends Flamingoes’ World Cup Run

Nigeria lost 3-0 out of the quarter-finals of the Fifa Under-17 Women’s World Cup to Spain.

A Patri Guijarro brace and Nahikari Garcia’s brilliant effort saw off the Flamingoes at the Estadio Edgardo Baltodano Briceño, Liberia, Costa Rica.

Guijarro converted from the penalty spot just before the quarter-hour mark after Nigeria’s Ugochi Emenayo tripped Andrea Falcon who was running into the penalty area at speed.

Spain doubled their advantage just prior to the hour mark with Dominguez once again setting up Garcia this time with a through pass which saw the latter hold off a defender and beat the advancing goalkeeper.

The Europeans sealed victory when a fierce strike from Sandra Hernandez from a 45-degree angle burst through the hands of goalkeeper, Onyinyechukwu Okeke, and Guijarro was there to tap the ball home from close range.

The loss prevented Nigeria, whose seven-match unbeaten run dates back to 2012, from reaching a record eight-match spell established by Japan between 2010 and 2012.
