The last step is missing in these World Cups in Jordan, to establish the national under 17 winner. The semi-finals, disputed between Venezuela-North Korea and Spain-Japan, have established the clear supremacy of the two Asian teams, while they relegated the opponents to the imminent fight for third place.
Venezuela 0-3 North Korea

The young North Korean team is the first finalist of this world championship in Jordan: strong 3 0 inflicted on South American (15 'K. Pom Ui, 72' J. Un Yong, 89 'R. Hae Yon), deny the possibility of reaching the first place of one of the favorite teams for this competition.

The game was undoubtedly marked by the strength of the North Korean tactics and structure, impeccable both mentally and in the game: the first net after just 15 minutes, followed by a relentless pressure on key Venezuelan players (Deyna Castellanos and Yerliane Moreno) and from the ability to give little space and no network has been able to ensure the result to the Asian, which remains the last fateful stage for the title of champions.

Spain 0-3 Japan
The match between Spain and Japan ends with the same score of the first semi-final: two goals (two goals by Takahashi, 14 'and 76' on penalty) and a Spanish own goal (Lucia, 48 ') have determined that it will be the Asian team to reach the final and to play for the victory of the world. The strong opposition of the Rojitas against the Japanese superpower did not help, and the Japanese have thus put an important signing on their eleventh consecutive win in this competition, despite the surprising turnover of the female players, among whom the absence of Riko Ueki, best player in three of the four games previously played. In this regard, real and at the same time encouraging were the words of the Japanese coach at the end of the game: "Of course, it was not a perfect performance, and there were little mistakes we have to improve before the next match. We need to continue to strengthen our strength. All that girls do, they do it because they love football very much, and they have a lot of fun ".

The next appointment will be with the long-awaited final of this world competition under 17 in Jordan: the challenge for the first place will be between North Korea and Japan, match preceded by the race for the third / fourth place, between Venezuela and Spain. Who will enter history?
