Nigeria lost the Fifa Under-20 Women’s World Cup final to Germany for a second time after extra-time in Montreal, Canada.

Lena Petermann scored the winning goal to help Germany clinch a record-equaling third title on 90 +8 minutes, despite her side being dominated by the Super Falconets for much of the proceedings at the Olympic Stadium.

Adidas golden ball and boot winner with seven goals Asisat Oshoala almost sealed a first triumph for coach Peter Dedevbo’s side with what would have been her eighth strike in the closing five minutes of regulation time, but her celebration was cut short by the assistant referee.

‘Die Mannschaft’s’ first real threat at goal in extra-time settled the difference as left-back Gladys Abassi bulked from Pauline Bremer’s challenge, the latter fizzled into the byline and sent a cutback to Peterman, who poked home from six yards.

Oshoala will be left ruing some missed chances in the first-half, however, the tinny bits of details count when it mattered most and Germany are indeed champions of the World.

Nigeria have now managed just 1 goal in three women’s U-20 cup games against Germany (two are title deciders), and have lost on all three occasions (in 2004, 2010 and 2014).

  1. Thanks for these tips. One thing I also believe is the fact that credit cards giving a 0% rate of interest often appeal to consumers in zero interest, instant acceptance and easy on the web balance transfers, but beware of the real factor that may void the 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and also throw anybody out into the very poor house rapid.
