The Super Falcons of Nigeria secured their spot in the second round of the FIFA Women’s World Cup after a stalemate with Ireland. Having previously secured an impressive victory against Australia, Nigeria only needed a draw in this game.
Despite their strong performance, Nigeria couldn’t find a winning goal, with Brosnan’s outstanding save denying Kanu’s header and the team hitting the bar. Toni Payne played exceptionally well, but Nigeria couldn’t secure maximum points. As a result, Australia finished at the top of the group following their victory against Canada in Melbourne, while Nigeria secured the second-place spot.
How far can the Super Falcons go in this tournament?
