Goals from either half see Nigeria record their first win in the ongoing 2019 FIFA women world cup holding in France.
Nigeria had early lost their first match of the campaign to Norway with a 3 goals deficit, but the Dennerby tutored side didn’t capitalize on that as they bounced back to trash to South Korea.
They took the lead in the first half after a mix-up between South Korea’s Kim Minjung and Kim Doyeon, with the defender sending her clearance into the goal.
The South Koreans were not demotivated with this as they push more to level back against the super falcons.
However, they hopes where down, when FC Barcelona and Nigeria forward, Asisat Oshoala used her power and technique to get past the goal keeper and slot in her first goal of the tournament 15 minutes from the end of the regular time.
Nigeria will now face France in the last match of the group stage, with a win against France maybe enough to qualify as one of the best two in the group for the elimination stage.
France already qualified with a 4 nil victory over South Korea and a 2-1 victory over Norway today.
