Japan and Nigeria pass passes while France and Netherlands smile at U20 Women’s World Cup

Japan and Nigeria beat Ghana and South Korea respectively on Sunday, which puts them one step away from qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Under-20 Women’s World Cup, an option that France and the Netherlands now have after their victories. .

In Pool D, Japan beat Ghana 2-0 and Netherlands beat America 3-0.

The winning goals for Japan came from Maika Hamano (62 and 73, both penalties), while Dutch Saini Koopman (32), Dana Foederer (55) and Marit Aue (62 penalties) hit United.

With these results, Japan leads Group D with six points, followed by the Netherlands and the United States with three and Ghana with zero.

To qualify for the quarter-finals, Japan would have to draw on the 17th against the United States on the final date, or the Netherlands would not beat Ghana.

This Sunday’s win has given the European team a chance to displace the Stars and Stripes team from second place and rely on themselves on the final day.

In Group C, Nigeria beat South Korea 1-0 with a goal from Esther Oninezide (83).

France beat Canada 3–1, with goals from Magnaba Folquet (51, 66) and Esther Mbechem-Niaro (89), while Olivia Smith (90 + 6) scored for Canada.

Nigeria leads the pack with six points, followed by France and South Korea with three, while Canada closes the table with no points and no chance of progressing to the next stage.

On the 17th, Nigeria will face Canada and France will take on South Korea. Africans need a tie to qualify.

The win gave a smile to the French, who are now relying on themselves to move on to the next stage. It would be enough for them not to lose to South Korea on the last date.
