Falconets fail to qualify for FIFA U-20 World Cup final

Nigeria’s Falconets on Tuesday failed to qualify for
the final of the ongoing FIFA U-20 Women’s World
Cup in Japan, after a 2-0 loss to two-time
champions, the U.S., at the Tokyo National Stadium.
Goals from Morgan Brian and Kealia Ohai halted the
ambition of the Nigerian side who were runmners-up
at the last edition, two years ago in Germany, and
had appeared destined for the 2012 edition’s final
The Falconets domintated the game in terms of
possession, always keeping the U.S on the retreat,
but the failure to take their chances as a result of
poor shooting did them in.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the
U.S., who will now be going into a third final
appearance, will face Germany in the final match.
The match will hold on Saturday at the Tokyo
National Stadium, some hours after Nigeria would
have played its Third-place match with Japan.
