New Delhi: Defending Champion Spain defeated Colombia by 1-0 in the final to win the 2022 U-17 Women’s World Cup at the DY Patil Stadium, on Sunday.
A goal by Ana Guzman in the 82nd minute led the team to win. The two teams also met in the group phase, with Spain winning 1-0.
In the presence of FIFA President Gianni Infantino, along with top officials from the Asian Football Federation (AFC) and All India Football Federation (AIFF), Spain successfully secured the title.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino complimented India for being decorous hosts of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
“India has been a fantastic host. This makes me believe that you can do more in other competitions as well. In the meantime, there can be only one World Champion, but there are 210 countries that are not champions,” Infantino said.
“However, I always say that all 211 countries win in the end. Football brings smiles to every little girl and boy in the world. When children play or watch football, they smile,” he added.
