2019 Women’s World Cup: Super Falcons qualify for Round of 16

Nigeria has qualified for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Round of 16.

The Super Falcons had to wait until the final Group F fixtures, to see if they would progress.
The USA beat Sweden 2-0 and more importantly, Chile could only defeat Thailand 2-0, despite needing to win by three unreplied goals.

Nigeria has taken the last slot reserved for the best third-placed countries.

The other three are Brazil, China and Cameroon.

Nigeria lost 3-0 in their opener to Norway, before beating Korea Republic 2-0 to claim their first win.

However, Thomas Dennerby’s ladies lost 1-0 under controversial circumstances to hosts France in their last Group A match.

They will now face Germany in the next round on June 22.
