Nigeria Women vs France Women Match Preview
Nigeria need to hope France take their foot off the pedal or they are likely to be relying on qualifying for the World Cup knockout stage as one of the four best third-placed teams.
A distinct hierarchy appears to have been established in Group A with hosts France already through to the last 16, Norway and Nigeria vying for second position and South Korea looking like they are destined for an early exit.
Having lost 3-0 to Norway and then won 2-0 against South Korea, the Nigerians are level on points with the Scandinavian side but the last round of fixtures presents them with much their most difficult test, facing the second favourites to lift the trophy.
The assumption, on the Super Falcons’ part, has to be that Norway will beat the Koreans, in which case they would have to win by a much bigger margin against France. But realistically that is not going to happen, so Nigeria really need a favour from the Koreans.
Of course, Les Bleues manager Corinne Diacre may decide to make some changes here ahead of the knockout stage to rest players, but then again France are not yet certain to finish top of the group table so they still have some motivation to go all out.
It may not be comfortable but we think France will make it three wins out of three and leave Nigeria biting their nails for the remainder of the group schedule to find out whether they have made it through among those who finish third.
