Though, they recorded a 2-1 victory over Spain in their last group match earlier on Sunday, but could not advance to the quarter finals, having lost 6-0 to Japan in their first match before a 3-1 win over Canada and today's 2-1 victory over Spain, in all this matches, the Falconets could only manage 6points, scoring 5 goals and conceding 8 goals. With -3 goal difference, Falconets could only manage third position in group B with Japan leading the group with 6 points, and +10 goals difference, Spain coming behind Japan with 6 points, and +5 goals difference, Nigeria took third with 6 points and -3 goal difference and Canadians are last on group B log with no point and -12 goal difference. Here is the group log;

Pos. Teams MP   W.       D.     L.      GF.    GA.  GD.  Pts.
1.      Japan.  3.      2.       0.      1.      11.     10.     1.     6.
2.      Spain.  3.      2.       0.      1.       7.       2.      5.     6.

4.   Canada.  3.     0.       0.       3.       1.     13.   -12.    0.

Other Africa representative, Ghana, may also bow out of the competition on Monday if they fail to beat USA convincingly in Group C final match. USA currently top group C with 4 points, New Zealand is second with 3 points, France is third with 2 points, while Ghana is last on the log with just 1 point.

From all indications this year competition is a bad market for the Africans.
