Norway vs. Nigeria in 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

Dr. Alhosani talking to the Super Falcons on anti-doping…yesterday

1995 Women's World Cup winners Norway swept aside Nigeria in a comfortable 3-0 win with three goals in the first half. "So, I hope we can score a lot of goals".

Without Ballon d'Or victor Hegerberg, who quit worldwide football in 2017 due to a dispute with her home federation, the 1995 champions relied on goals by Guro Reiten, Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland and an own goal by Osinachi Phale to prevail.

The Falcons will face South Korea in their next fixture at the World Cup on Wednesday before slugging it out against hosts France on June 17.

Nigeria defender Onome Ebi: "We're going to go back and look at our mistakes and work on them".

The Norway team have won six of the seven opening matches they have played in the FIFA Women's World Cups over the years. Poland was the team, that Norway played the last opposition versus.

The first penalty came after a handball by South Africa captain Janine van Wyk and the second after follow through tackle by full back Nothando Vilakazi on Garcia which earned Vilakazi a second yellow card and a dismissal. But she failed to deliver when it mattered most.
