World Cup: Super Falcons Lose 1-0 To France

France finished top of group a after a twice-taken penalty gave them victory over Nigeria in an incident-packed women’s World Cup game.

The initial penalty – awarded after a Video Assistant Referee review for a foul on Viviane Asseyi – hit the post.

But keeper Chiamaka Nnadozie was ruled to have moved off her line early and Renard slotted the re-taken spot kick.

Despite losing 1-0, Nigeria still have a big chance of making the last 16 as one of the best third-placed teams.

Group winners France, meanwhile, head to Le Havre to meet as yet unknown opponents on 23 June.
