The Chilean under-15 women's national soccer team won the Gold Medal in the Girls’ Youth Olympic Soccer Tournament at Singapore by defeating pre-tournament favourites Equatorial Guinea.

The Chilean team defeated Equatorial Guinea on penalty shots after a 1-1 draw in the 80 minutes of regulation. Taking advantage of the fragility of the African defence, Chile dominated the game from the start generating several opportunities for scoring. The Chilean team took the lead on a goal by Romina Orellana, 24 minutes into the game, through a free kick that beat goaltender Dolores Nchama.

The goal of the African team came on the second half after a questionable penalty call of Ukrainian referee Kateryna Monzul when Judit Ndong fell in the area. Ndong scored sending the game to a penalty shoot-out definition.
The Chilean players scored all their penalty shots and goaltender Paola Hinojosa managed to stop the last chance for Equatorial Guinea giving the Chilean side the victory and the Gold Medal.
It was a rather surprising win for the Chilean girls since they had previously lost 1:4 to Equatorial Guinea in the group stage of the competition.

The Chilean players dedicated the victory and their YOG Gold Medal to the 33 miners trapped in the San José mine in Copiapó, reported La Tercera (in Spanish).
The girls from Turkey won the bronze medal by defeating Iran 3-0.
