The Super Falcons were able to keep their defensive discipline and heads after conceding via penalty, but that was not enough.

Super Falcons, with three points and goals difference of minus two, will now have to wait till the conclusion of the remaining games in groups C, D, E and F to know if they will progress to the round of 16.

Caroline Graham Hansen scored the earliest spot-kick in Women's World Cup history to get her side up and running in the fifth minute, with Isabell Herlovsen's penalty doubling Norway's lead.

Nigeria's defense was compact, disciplined, and aggressive throughout the first forty-five minutes just like the team's handler, Thomas Dennerby, said before the match.

"However, against France on Monday in Rennes, we will need to be much more proactive and try to dictate the pace of the game".

Renard's initial attempt was wide to the right of goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie, but Borjas ordered the kick retaken because Nnadozie came off the line before the ball was kicked.

Ebere, who was already in a yellow card, bagged on 28 minutes, received her marching order after getting a second yellow card.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Nigerian senior women national football team face the hosts in their final Group A match at the ongoing FIFA Women's World Cup.

Video Assistant Referee (VAR) called for a re-take of the penalty and which Renard converted.

The Falcons put up a credible effort at the sixth edition of the Women's World Cup in Germany in 2011, but after one-goal defeat by host nation Germany and France, their one-goal defeat of Canada proved inadequate to steer them to the second round.
