NGA-W vs FRA-W Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Nigeria face France in a must-win game in their last group game in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup at Roazhon Park.

Teams: Nigeria and France

World Ranking:

  • Nigeria: 38
  • France: 4


Group A:

  • With two wins in as many games, France are currently leading the table, scoring six times and conceding just one.
  • The hosts are almost guaranteed a place in the last-16. For them, the worst case scenario is a win for Norway against South Korea, and they themselves lose to Nigeria by at least 3-0. Too hypothetical! So, France are through.

  • Nigeria meanwhile won their first game in the FIFA Women’s World Cup since 2011 after beating South Korea 2-0.
  • The win could prove to be crucial for Super Falcons as even if they lose to the hosts in their next game, they can still secure a berth at the last-16 by finishing as one of the 3rd best teams at the group stage.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 match will be played between Nigeria and France at Stade de la Route de Lorient (Roazhon Park), in Rennes, Brittany, France. The ground has a capacity of 29,778.
