It is currently half-time of the U-20 Women’s World Cup Finals in Germany.  The host nation, Germany, leads Nigeria 1-0.

Match Preview from FIFA.com:

The Nigeria team who will contest Sunday’s final of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup against Germany are proving the talk of their country back home, but coach Ndem Egan thinks his girls can withstand the stress of the big event and lift the trophy on Sunday afternoon.

With even Nigeria’s president and first lady counted as high-profile supporters, there is certainly more attention on the Falconets

than was expected at the start of the tournament. But the west Africans have a solid pedigree in women’s football, and Egan says the current squad are taking great strength from their performances so far in the finals.

“You can’t really say that Germany will be the toughest opponent we have yet faced in this tournament because we don’t know,” said Egan about the Germans, who are leading scorers in the tournament with 18 goals, possess the individual top markswoman in

Alexandra Popp, who has nine tallies, and are overwhelming favourites to lift their second youth crown. “We have seen Germany play other teams but they haven’t played Nigeria before. We are a good team, and we are not feeling we can’t beat Germany. It is going to be an interesting match and it won’t be easy for Gemany.”

There is still 1 half to go …
