Cruel exit for Ghana under-17 side
Ghana under-17 team
Ghana knocked out Brazil in the second round

Ghana suffered a painful semi-final defeat to Spain at the under-17 World Cup in South Korea on Wednesday.

The game was tied at 1-1 after 90 minutes, and with a penalty shoot-out looming, Spain scored with four minutes of extra-time remaining for a 2-1 victory.

Sadick Adams had pulled the Black Starlets level in the 80th minute, after Daniel Aquino had given Spain the lead on 67 minutes.

But Bojan scored in the 116th minute, and Ghana were unable to respond.

The game was a hard-fought and evenly-balanced affair.

Two-time winners of the tournament, Ghana had knocked Brazil out in the second round of the competition.

Africa's hopes now rest on Nigeria, who play Germany on Thursday in the other semi-final match.
