Breaking News:  France 2019: Super Falcons Scraps Through, To Battle Germany 

Published

on

The Super Falcons of Nigeria have qualified for the round of 16 in the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

The African champions qualified as one of the four third-best teams after Chile defeated Thailand 2-0 on Thursday night but still had minus 4 goals difference, giving the Falcons an edge with minus 2 goals difference.

Nigeria will now be playing Germany in the next round

The Nigerian side whose fate was out of their hands needed ‘help’ from Cameroon to progress but the Lioness had other ideas as they were also fighting to qualify as they defeated New Zealand 2-1.

It will be recalled that Nigeria ended Group A with three points, losing 3-0 to Norway, defeating North Korea by 3-0 and losing painfully to France by a lone goal.

Meanwhile, the Super Falcons had continued their training sessions prior to the games in Rennes.
