Norway Beat Nigeria 3-0 In Group Opener

Super Falcons France 2019

The Super Falcons got off to a poor start in this year's Women's World Cup after they went down 3-0 to Norway no thanks to defensive mistakes at the back. "So, I hope we can score a lot of goals".

Six minutes later, Osinachi Ohale poked the ball into her own net from a cross.

Faith Michael's faint touch was enough to put the ball out of Utland's reach before the Nigeria defender collided with her goalkeeper and was taken from the pitch on a stretcher.

France and Norway have now recorded three points each, while Korea Republic and Nigeria are pointless.

He scored 8,701 runs at an average of 36.55 in ODIs with 14 hundreds and 52 fifties , and took 111 wickets at 38.68 apiece. Meanwhile, the Indian cricketing great will continue to play domestically in the national leagues.

Norway showed their class in the opening on Saturday evening with a 3-0 thumping of Nigeria. We have to fight for 180 minutes more, plus added time, " he said.

Reiten combined with Caroline Hansen to open the scoring, her shot deflecting off the arm of Ebi, the first African to play in five World Cups, on its way into the net. "We know it's going to be tough, but we have a very good team". The fearless twosome are great individually, but the fact that they play their club football together for Chelsea gave them an nearly telepathic understanding at the heart of the Norwegian rearguard.

Norway have won their first match at each of their last seven World Cup tournaments (1995 to 2019) since a 0-4 defeat in their opening match in 1991 against China. Much like the other Group A match, the night before, the second half failed to match the first, the bite taken out of the action leaving everything feeling a little flat.
