All efforts by our super falconets to replicate their wins up to this stage were dashed as the United States got goals from Morgan Brian and Kealia Ohai to beat Nigeria 2-0 on today and advance to the final of the women's under-20 World Cup for the third time.

The American coach, Swanson confessed that it was not an easy game and was very physical. The Americans, who won the tournament in 2002 and 2008, will face the defending champion Germany in Saturday's final.

Nigeria would have to settle for a third place struggle with the host country, Japan
