Norway Women vs Nigeria Women Match Preview

Despite having the world’s best female footballer working as a TV pundit instead of in their team, Norway are expected to launch their World Cup campaign with an easy victory against Nigeria.

Ada Hegerberg, who plays for Champions League holders Lyon – she scored a hat-trick in this year’s final against Barcelona – is currently in possession of the Ballon d’Or Feminin and her absence will be huge for the Scandinavian country, who were world champions in 1995.

Not injured or suspended, 23-year-old Hegerberg, who recently married former Celtic and Wigan defender Thomas Rogne, has refused to play for Norway since September 2017 because she feels her national federation treats female players inadequately compared to their male counterparts.

But enough about who is not playing and let’s focus on who will be, because even though Norway are 40/1 outsiders with bookmaker Paddy Power to lift the trophy for a second time they are expected to be far too good for Nigeria.

Nigeria won a competition in Africa last month in which their results included a 15-0 victory against Niger, but with all due respect they appear to be making up the numbers in France.

That is not the case with Norway, who will be expected to reach the knockout phase from Group A along with the hosts, and the Grasshoppers are backed to make a flying start.
