Nigeria Falconets In Tears As They Crash Out of U20 WWC After Loss To Netherland


It was a very painful exit for the players, we started well winning all 3 games in the group for the first time in our history even though the team didn’t get the necessary support to prepare for the tournament, no training tour, no international friendlies but we still got to this stage with home based players. At the quarterfinal stage, we fell to Netherlands 2 goals to nil, via two first half goals. And the wait for an African team to win the women’s Under 20 world cup still continues.

The match was played very late on Sunday the 21st of August by 11:30pm Nigerian time at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto in Costa Rica.
