FIFA Women's World Cup Wrap 08 June 2019

Dr. Alhosani talking to the Super Falcons on anti-doping…yesterday

Despite the big win, Norway occupy second spot in the group after France's 4-0 win over Korea Republic on Friday evening.

Doing well to counter and move the ball quickly, the Nordic nation claimed their second goal ten minutes before the break when Reiten's ball found Lisa-Marie Utland in space.

It was a bad night for the African champions as defender Faith Michael was carried off on a stretcher after being caught by team-mate Oluehi.

"We have these players we have, and we've worked so hard as a group to grow stronger every time we meet", said Sjogren. 19-year-old Giulia Gwinn was the scorer of the winning goal in the 66th minute after the Chinese had wasted a couple of gilt-edged chances in the first half.

Three minutes after, it went horribly wrong for Nigeria and Osinachi Ohale as she poked the ball into her own net, after a cross from the right.

"A game can change in the last minute".

This was the Nigerians' 17 loss at the World Cup. "We're going to go back and look at our mistakes and maybe work on them".

While the Super Falcons now face a battle to stay in the tournament, Norway head to Nice to face hosts France in buoyant mood.

"We've learned so much from this first game and we'll come back". This will be the second time that Norway and Nigeria will play against each other at the FIFA Women's World Cup.
