Super Falconets through to the quarter-finals of the U-20 Women’s World Cup

Nigeria is through to the quarter-finals of the U-20 Women’s World Cup in France, following a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser in a 1-1 draw with China.

Jiaxing Dou, challenged by Rasheedat Ajibade, struck into her own net in the last minute of the Group D game, to give the Super Falconets the point they needed to qualify.

China, who needed a win to progress, had taken the lead just before half-time through Linyan Zhang.

Nigeria joins Germany in the last eight from Group D, after the Germans finished top of the standings with a maximum nine points.

The Falconets, who squeezed ahead of China on goal-difference, finished on four points.

They will now play Spain in the quarter-finals on Thursday.
