Switzerland have beaten defending champions and tournament hosts Nigeria 1-nil in the Boy's Under-17 Football World Cup final.

Nigeria were the favourites to win the match, hunting their fourth Under-17 title in front of a 60 thousand strong crowd at Abuja National Stadium.

But Switzerland's Haris Seferovic [Harris Ser-fori-vich] put an end to that with a header into the back of the net in the 63rd minute.

Spain beat Colombia 1-nil to secure third place.
