Two African countries stood a chance...and then there was one

It was a VERY tough match - the only match to make it to a penalty shoot-out so far in the tournament. Nigeria's Flamingoes made their exit from the U-17 Women's World Cup after a 3:5 loss to France.

Celebration for Ghana's Black Maidens (

In the other quarter, though Japan had more possession of the game, the Black Maidens of Ghana made it to the semifinals after their 1:0 victory, thanks to Sherifatu Sumaila's goal in the 53rd minute.

Ghana will now face Nigeria's conquerors, France. Does anyone see revenge in sight?
