After a ressurgence that earned the Super Falcons a victory over highly-rated South Korea on Wednesday, the Nigerian side now targets a draw against host France in the final group match.
The Super Falcons had boosted Nigeria’s chances of qualifying for the next round in the ongoing FIFA Women World Cup in France with a 2-0 victory over South Korea.
The first goal arrived in the first half when South Korean defender Kim Doyeon kicked the ball into her own net following strong pressing by Falcons striker Desire Oparanozie.
Barcelona’s striker Asishat Oshoala scored a beautifully taken solo goal in the second half after a counter-attack by the team.
A draw against hosts France in the next game will see Nigeria proceed to the next round.
