ABUJA - Day Three of the FIFA U-17 World Cup Nigeria 2009 saw a show of European force.
Spain earned the fastest red card in tournament history in their come-from-behind 2-1 win that twice had to be halted due to lighting failure, while near neighbours Italy ground out a slim win over a stingy Algerian outfit.
The first game of these finals from Kaduna saw Korea Republic heal some of the disappointment of their group stage exit as hosts two years ago, with a simple 3-1 win over Uruguay.
Over in the Kano’s early contest, UAE earned their first win at a U-17 finals with a tough 2-0 result over debutant Africans Malawi, who had two players ejected in an otherwise creditable performance.
The brave Malawians became the first African debutants to lose a U-17 opener since 1993.
