Germany lifted the FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup for the second time with a 2-0 victory over Nigeria in the Final in Bielefeld.
The host nation got off to the perfect start by taking the lead in the eighth minute. Alexandra Popp flicked the ball on to Dzsenifer Marozsan, who played a return pass for Popp to latch onto and bury her shot past Alaba Jonathan for her tenth goal of the tournament.
Kim Kulig almost added a second from a free kick and Sylvia Arnold was denied shortly before half time when her effort was saved by Jonathan.
After the break, Nigeria worked hard to try and get back into the game but the chances continued to fall Germany's way, Popp going close once more while Svenja Huth and Stefanie Mirlach both drew saves from Jonathan.
Germany continued to dominate with Kulig wasting a good chance when she scuffed her shot against a post. However the second goal finally came in injury time from a corner, Kulig's header striking the upright before cannoning back in off the unfortunate Osinachi Ohale to put the result beyond doubt.
