U-17 FIFA Female Cup: Flamingos To Play Third Place Match Against Germany

Nigeria were beaten by Colombia on penalties in the semi-finals of the Under-17 Women’s World Cup to extend Africa’s wait for a maiden appearance in the final.

Colombia goalkeeper Luisa Agudelo saved from Comfort Folorunsho to seal a 6-5 win in the shootout after a goalless 90 minutes in Margao, Goa.

Omamuzo Edafe had a chance to win it for Nigeria after Colombia forward Yesica Munoz saw her effort saved.

However, Edafe hit the right-hand upright with Nigeria’s fifth attempt.

Colombia netted twice in sudden death before a reluctant Folorunso was denied by Agudelo.

Appearing at their sixth Under 17 women’s world cup, Nigeria will play Sunday’s third place play-off with Germany in a bid to equal the continent’s best finish in the competition.

Flamingos have reached the quarter-finals three times, but the best performance by an African team at the tournament came when Ghana finished third in 2012 in Azerbaijan.
