Nigeria’s Falconets lost to Germany in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup final which took place on Sunday 24th August 2014 in Montreal, Canada. It was 1-0.
After 90 minutes and an extra time, Lena Petermann scored for her country, defeating Peter Dedevbo‘s (Falconets coach) girls.
If you would recall, the Falconets also lost to the Germans in the 2010 edition. This will be the third time Germany will win the competition.
But it wasn’t a total loss for Nigeria.

She won the Golden Ball award as the best player and Golden Boot after scoring seven goals.
