The World Cup in Jordan under 17 closed with the last two chapters, which saw the matches between North Korea and Japan for the first place, and Venezuela-Spain for the lowest step of the podium. North Korea and Spain won respectively, leaving the Venezuelan national team unexpectedly out of the podium, which seemed to have positioned itself as a favorite in the competition.

The results of the matches:
North Korea 0 (5) - (4) 0 Japan
The all-Asian final ends with a goalless draw, then decided for 5 to 4 in favor of the North Koreans on penalties. 60% of ball possession and a clear majority of goal actions in favor of Japan were not sufficient elements to make a change to the game, which saw the 0 dragged to 0 up to the penalties, where the penultimate penalty was missed from Kanekatsu.
The North Korean women under 17 thus entered history with a new record: it is in fact the first team to win for the second time this international competition, confirming how much the Asian female nationals are increasingly confirmed protagonists within the world calsic panorama.

Color note of the match: winner of the Adidas Golden Ball, or the golden ball of these 2016 World Cup, is the young Fuka Nagano, a seventeen year old Japanese player, as well as captain of her national team. His skill has certainly not overshadowed, despite the lack of victory in the final, and the winning of this award at the height of this world of Jordan is to be added to a series of individual awards won in the course of a few years.

Venezuela 0 - 4 Spain
Netta is the victory of Spain against the Venezuelan, who with four goals conceded they say goodbye to third place in the world championship of Jordan 2016. Great merit goes to the Spanish, whose poker is signed by only two players, or the two Navarros of the national team: Eva and Lorraine respectively mark one (17 ') and three (53', 78 'and 87') networks in this final, making the result unequivocal and bringing home a great result and a great joy from their supporters, as reflected by the words of the coach.
"I'm very, very happy," Maria Is, Spain's coach, said at the end of the match, so happy I can hardly describe my feelings. Today I saw all the hard work of my girls in this competition, and being among the first three teams in the world is very emotional. [...] You would always like to win the gold medal, but now I have forgotten the disappointment. I know we had bad luck in the game against Japan but, as I said, the only emotion I feel now is happiness. "

The worthy conclusion of this world is certainly concentrated in the words reported by FIFA on the official website, about the background -and at the same time future projects- of this world:
"While growing this generation of talented soccer players seems to have been the main objective of this competition, Jordan 2016 has had even bigger ambitions. This was declared the queen of the host country, His Highness Rania, well before the first kick-off, affirming his belief that football could help "change attitudes and perceptions of how societies see girls and young women ". Samar Nassar, CEO of the majority of the organizing committee, went even further, stating that the players who participated in the competition "did not just kick the ball for themselves or for their country, but for all the girls out there, for the women's empowerment and for the promotion of gender equality.
