FALCONET CRASHED OUT IN THE FIFA U-20 WOMENS WORLD CUP IN A 2--1 WIN OVER SPAIN.

Falconet's Win Against Spain Was No Enough To Qualify Them Out From Group Stage As The Crashed Out With Goal Different.



Nigeria's Falconet 2-1 win over Spain in FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup at Papua New Guinea was not enough to qualify them out of the group stage despite having same point with group leader Japan and Second Spain.

Falconet played their last group match against Spain on early Sunday at the Port Moresby Stadium in PNG in a game that they need to score as much goals as they can to qualify them from the group B standings.
Spanish Alba Redondo scored in the 7th minute to put pressure on the Falconet but in the 12th minute, Ihuoma Onyebuchi got the equalising goal and bring back Falconets hope in the game as it ended in a level score line at the half time.

In the second half, Rasheedat Ajibade hit a superb long ball towards Chinwendu Ihezuo who noded the ball past the Spanish defenders and sprinted into the space, before firing home a left footed effort to give Nigeria the lead in the 72nd-minute.





Falconet were reduced to ten players in the last six minutes of the game after Glory Ogbonna picked up a second booking which sent her off the pitch. They held on the last six minutes and took the lead to the final whistle.
That is the second winning for the Nigerians after loosing their first match to Japan and win their second and third against Canada and Spain respectively but the winnings weren't enough to qualify them out of group B.

In the other group B game, Japan defeated Canada by 5 un-replied goals which send them top the group with SIX POINTS and having a (+10) goal difference, while Spain come second with SIX POINTS and (+5) goal difference. Nigeria is third with SIX POINTS and (-3) goal differences, while Canada were at the bottom of the group with ZERO POINT and (-12) goal differences.
