2019 Women’s World Cup: Norway thrash Super Falcons of Nigeria 3-0

The Super Falcons of Nigeria were defeated by Norway in their opening Group A game at the on-going 2019 Women’s World Cup in Reims.

The 1995 world champions took the lead when Guro Reiten’s shot deflected off Onome Ebi into the net. Lisa-Marie Utland fired through the hands of keeper Tochukwu Oluehi to make it 2-0 before an own goal by Osinachi Ohale compounded Nigeria’s misery.

Nigeria will face Korea Republic in their next game on June 12, knowing that another defeat will result in early elimination from the tournament.
