Nigeria beats Spain in penalty shootout for U-17 title

SEOUL, South Korea -- Nigeria won the under-17 World Cup soccer championship for the third time, beating Spain in a penalty-kick shootout Sunday after extra time ended 0-0.

The Africans won their third title, kicking home three goals in the penalty phase as goalkeeper Oladele Ajiboye kept the Spaniards scoreless at Seoul FIFA World Cup Stadium. Nigeria also won in 1985 and 1993.

The Golden Eaglets' goals came from Matthew Edile, Daniel Joshua and Ganiyu Oseni.

The result proved another disappointment for Spain, which has reached the final three times without a championship.

It was only the fourth time in 12 Under-17 World Cup tournaments that the title was decided on penalty kicks.

Earlier, Germany downed Ghana 2-1 for third place.
