Spain booked their spot in the semi-finals of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup France 2018 after first-half goals from Aitana Bonmati and Patri Guijarro gave La Rojita a 2-1 victory over Nigeria in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

Having struggled to create much in the first half, the Super Falconets responded with a goal just before the hour mark through Peace Efih.

Though they halved their deficit, Nigeria was unable to find an equaliser, as Spain saw out the remainder of the contest to reach the last four of this competition for the first time.

Damaris Egurrola of Spain won the Player of the match.
