Womens U20 World Cup - England 1-2 Nigeria

Womens U20 World Cup - England 1-2 Nigeria

The Womens U20 side are out of the World Cup having suffered a two one defeat to Nigeria in our third and final Group C game.

Having taken two points from the opening group games, one all draws with South Korea and Mexico, England needed to win in order to progress to the late eight stage and that was too much to ask last Thursday night.

England did take the lead in the game but Nigeria equalised before the half time break and then with a penalty award we could've restored our lead but unfortunate Beth Mead put it over the crossbar, and minutes later another penalty decision gave Nigeria the chance to take advantage and they did.

England:

Lizzie Durack (Everton), Martha Harris (Liverpool), Aoife Mannion (Birmingham City), Gabby George (Everton), Leah Williamson (Arsenal), Jess Sigsworth (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Sherry McCue (Aston Villa), Abbey-Leigh Stringer (Birmingham City), Nikita Parris (Everton), Beth Mead (Sunderland), Hannah Blundell (Chelsea).

Subs:

Mel Lawley (Birmingham City) for Mead (63), Paige Williams (Everton) for Sigsworth (66), Katie Zelem (Liverpool) for McCue (89).

Sub:

Meaghan Sargeant (Birmingham City), Megan Walsh (Everton), Jade Bailey (Arsenal), Ellie Stewart (Liverpool), Natasha Flint (Manchester City), Jess Carter (Birmingham City), Caitlin Leach (Aston Villa).

Head Coach: Mo Marley.

Goals: Parris (5).

Bookings: George (59).

Nigeria:

Sandra Chiichii, Ebere Okoye, Asisat Oshoala, Sarah Nnodim, Loveth Ayila, Courtney Dike, Halimatu Ayinde, Ugo Njoku, Victoria Aidelomon, Gladys Abasi, Chinwendu Ihezuo.

Subs:

Uchechi Sunday for Dike (46), Yetunde Adeboyejo for Aidelomon (62), Uchenna Kanu for Ihezuo (90).

Subs:

Jiroro Idike, Maryam Ibrahim, Patience Okaeme, Yetunde Aluko, Osarenoma Igbinovia, Ibijoke Sangonuga, Chiudo Ehiudo.
