Defenders of the title Spain won the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup with a 1-0 victory against Colombia, whose campaign ended in heartbreak after an own goal in the final.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino, as well as key officials from the Asian Football Federation (AFC) and the All India Football Federation (AIFF), were in attendance as Spain eked out a solitary goal victory to retain the championship they previously won in 2018.
