The Nigeria ladies gave a good account of themselves especially in the first half before Spain took charge in the second half seeing Patri Guijarron netting a brace, the first being a penalty scored in the 29th minute after Ugochi Emenayo tripped Andrea Falcon who was racing toward goal.

Spain doubled their lead in the 59th minute when Nahikari Garcia pounced on a sublime pass from Laura Dominguez.

Spain sealed the victory when Patri Guijarron completed her brace in the 70th minute for the third goal of the game, tapping in a rebound after Nigeria goalkeeper dropped a shot from Sandra Hernandez.

Nigeria goalkeeper Onyinyechukwu Okeke had a busy day stopping the efforts of Laura Dominguez and Nahikari Garcia.
