Hegerberg-less Norway canter past Nigeria

Super Falcons wins AWCON 2018

Norway had their third goal in the 36th minute thanks to an own goal by Osinachi Ohale when she poked the ball into her own net after a cross from the right.

On a bad night for the African champions, defender Faith Michael was carried off on a stretcher after being caught by team-mate Oluehi.

Even without star player Ada Hegerberg, Norway - world champions in 1995 - cruised to victory Saturday in Reims against a team who had never made it out of the group stage. With France beating South Korea in the opener on Friday, the two teams face a chance to go into Matchday 2 with a three-point edge with regards to a spot in the knockout stage.

The goals were scored in the first half to condemn the nine-time African champions to their 17th defeat in World Cup finals. "So, I hope we can score a lot of goals".

The Swede who led the team to their ninth African title at Ghana last November said every game was now going to matter. "The second game will be better than the first, we've learned so much from this first game and we'll come back".

Nigeria have conceded more goals than any other nation in Women's World Cup history (59) - with 19% of those goals conceded against Norway (11 of 59).

Nigeria's Onome Ebi appeared in her fifth World Cup tournament (2003, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019) - only Japan's Homare Sawa and Brazil's Formiga have ever appeared in more different tournaments (six each).

With one goal under their belt - possibly having exorcized any daemons from two years ago - Norway seemed to relaxed, Caroline Graham Hansen's deft footwork to set up Reiten the sign that they had settled.

Former champions Norway kicked off their Women's World Cup campaign with a routine 3-0 victory over Nigeria, despite the absence of Ballon d'Or victor Ada Hegerberg.
