Under 17 World Cup Final

Spain 0 - Nigeria 0 (0-3 penalty shoot out)

Disappointment for the third time for Spain in an under 17 World Cup final, Juan Santiesteban's side losing on penalties to Nigeria. Missing the suspended Bojan, Spain hardly created any chances for their forwards, although a tight defence ensured that opportunities at the other end were few and far between as well. With the scoreline unchanged, the game went into extra time, where Akinsola almost caught out De Gea from a shot within his own half which bounced back off the crossbar. In the end though it was down to penalties, and Illara, Mérida and Iago all failed to convert their kicks, handing the African side their third title at this level. (09.09.07)
