[UNDER-17 WORLD CUP] Mexico, winner of world championships in 2005 and 2011, returned to the final of the Under-17 World Cup with a 3-0 win over Argentina in the semifinals. It will face Nigeria in Friday's final in a repeat of their opening game won by the Green Eaglets, 6-1.

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 Ibanez and 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.

    The biggest doubter seems to be their senior team.
