Japan create history


Saturday, August 25, 2018

Vannes: Japan completed the trifecta of Women's World Cups by winning the FIFA U-20 title on Friday to add to the 2011 World Cup and 2014 FIFA U-17 titles, becoming the first nation to win all three crowns.


The 3-1 win over Spain in the final on Friday was remarkable as the European champions had defeated Japan 1-0 in the group stage and looked to have a slight edge going into the final.

Head coach Futoshi Ikeda had set his team a target of making the final but the Young Nadeshiko went one better to create history.
