In the first semi-final played at the same venue earlier in the day, Colombia beat Nigeria 6-5 via a dramatic penalty shoot-out to become the first South American country to to the final in the age group showpiece.

The two teams were locked scoreless at the end of regular time. Gabriela Rodriguez, Stefania Perlaza, Mary Espitaleta, Linda Caicedo, Juana Ortegon and Natalia Hernandez scored for Colombia, while Munoz missed in the penalty shootout.

It was heartbreak for Nigeria as they were on the brink of victory in the penalty shootout. At 4-4, Edafe could have given her side the win as hers was the last shot among the first five players, but she hit the post to continue shooting.

Edet Offiong, Edidiong Etim, Miracle Usani, Taiwo Afolabi and Shakirat Oyinlola scored for the African team.
