Semi-final results
Germany 5-1 Korea Republic
Colombia 0-1 Nigeria
However, the Falconets held on to continue their magnificent run at Germany 2010 and become the first African team to The match got off to an extraordinary start when the Africans took the lead just two minutes in, but Ndem Egan's charges were forced to endure wave after wave of South American attacks as the match wore on. The second semi-final between Nigeria and Colombia was a far tenser affair. Korea Republic starlet Ji So-Yun, whose seventh of the tournament proved scant consolation for the AFC outfit, could still catch up in the match for third place. The 19-year-old Popp was once again in red-hot form as she bumped her tally up to nine goals in five matches, although the race for the adidas Golden Boot is far from over.

A goal from Svenja Huth and two from Kim Kulig had given the last remaining European side a comfortable lead at the midway point, before a double within the first three minutes of the second period from the tournament's top scorer Alexandra Popp rounded off a memorable performance. As in Saturday's quarter-final win over Korea DPR, Maren Meinert's German outfit again turned on the fireworks against Asian opponents, all but sewing up their place in Sunday's showdown within the opening half hour. While hosts Germany won the first with an emphatic 5-1 victory over Korea Republic, Nigeria were made to sweat during a close-fought 1-0 success against Colombia. The two teams who will contest the final of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup 2010 became clear after Thursday's two semi-finals.
