Mexico got two goals from Ivan Ochoa and another from Marco Granados to move to within one win of a third world title. Argentina finished the game with nine players, losing Joaquin Ibanezand goalie Omar Govea to red cards.



Taiwo Awoniyi, Samuel Okon and Chidera Ezeh scored to give Nigeria a 3-0 win over Sweden, which also competed in the same group as Mexico and Nigeria. The Golden Eaglets, who have scored 23 goals in five games, are seeking their fourth U-17 title.
