Women’s World Cup: Super Falcons’ chances of qualifying reduce as Brazil take second slot
Nigeria will now be watching the rest of the 2019 Women’s World Cup nervously.
The Super Falcons saw their chances of making the Round of 16 reduce, as Brazil took the second slot after Tuesday matches.
The South Americans beat Italy 1-0, thanks to Marta’s late penalty, to claim third spot in Group C.
Three of the teams in the group including Australia finished with six points, while Jamaica had zero.
There are now two slots left for the best third-placed teams.
For the African champions to qualify now, Scotland need to beat Argentina on Wednesday. Or at least hold the South Americans to a draw.
New Zealand must also hold Cameroon or if either side wins on Thursday, it must not be by more than three goals.
Thailand, who have conceded 18 times already, should not lose by more than three goals to Chile.
