Spain are out of the under 17 World Cup after losing to hosts Nigeria in the semi-final. Ginés Meléndez's side started well, but an injury to Muniain early on changed their plans.

Okoro put the African side ahead on the half hour mark after cutting in to beat Edgar, and Sani Emmanuel scored two more after the restart to put the result beyond doubt.

Borja got a late consolation, but his side now only have the chance to finish in third spot, with a play-off against Colombia on Sunday. Once again Nigeria had frustrated their plans, after beating the youngsters in the final in South Korea two years ago.
