The final of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 is a repeat of the 2010 showpiece between the then hosts Germany and Nigeria. That game went the way of the European side, an outcome the in-form Africans will be aiming to avenge this weekend. 

There were seven minutes remaining of Nigeria’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 quarter-final with New Zealand on Sunday when Super Falconets’ coach Peter Dedevbo decided to freshen up his front line.

Nigeria have edged England with a 2-1 comeback win to top Group C, leaving the Europeans to head for home.

Ex Ghana star Tony Yeboah is against the appointment of a technical adviser for the Black Stars despite assurances it is a move to enhance the team’s performance.

A Jennifer Cudjoe winner four minutes from full time narrowly failed to earn Ghana last-eight qualification, and left an unlucky Finland without a point in the competition.

Going into the fifth round of matches in the group stage of the CAF Champions League all eight teams remaining in the competition still had a chance of qualifying for the semi-finals.

With some fans still yet to take their seats in the Moncton Stadium, Nigeria’s Courtney Dike latched onto the ball just outside the Korea Republic six-yard box, saw a gap, set her sights and sent a low shot inside the far post – putting her team ahead after only 18 seconds of play.
