Nigerian women's team hoping for World Cup revenge against France

Jean-Pierre Clatot, AFP | Nigeria's forward Desire Oparanozie (R) jumps for the ball during the France 2019 Women's World Cup Group A football match between Nigeria and South Korea, on June 12, 2019.

The Nigerian women’s football team are training hard in preparation for their match against the French hosts on June 17 – hoping that they won’t undergo a repeat of their 8-0 drubbing at the hands of Les Bleues last year.


At 38th in the FIFA rankings, the Nigerian women’s team have only once managed to get past the group stage.
