#2022 U-20 WWC: Falconets Conqueror Netherlands Lose To Spain In Semi-finals

Netherlands who eliminated the Falconets in the quarter-finals of this year’s FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup, lost 2-1 to Spain in the semi-finals on Thursday.

Recall the Netherlands defeated the Falconets 2-0 after two first half goals to reach a first ever semi-finals in the competition.

But in Thursday’s last four clash, Netherlands found themselves 2-0 down in the first half following a brace from Inma Gabarro on 22 and 25 minutes.

The Spaniard will now meet holders Japan in the final after the Asians overcame Brazil 2-1 in the second semi-final.

This year’s final will be a repeat of the 2018 edition which saw Japan beat Spain 3-1.

    The team was very poor against Spain in the first half. I even started wondering if this was the team we lost to. Forced error leading to the opener. but in the second half, they played a bit better to pull one goal back but could not get secure the needed equalizer to force the game to extra time. I see Spain winning this one although they have a huge task in Japan who have shown tremendous will in this tournament

    Watched the match and I wondered why the Dutch played with fear or maybe they thought Spain was Nigeria that won’t take their chances when it comes begging, overall it’s a poor performance from them generally,knew they were lucky to have outsted our girls.
