Nigeria both suffered defeats in the opening group games of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

Nigeria lost 3-0 to Norway at the Stade Auguste-Delaune in Reims.

In Group A, the first-half blitz by Norway saw them beat Nigeria 3-0.

Strikes from Guro Reiten and Lisa-Marie Utland and an Osinachi Ohale own goal gave the 1995 world champions a strong lead which they never relinquished.

Nigerian defender Faith Michael was stretchered off after a collision with team-mate Tochukwu Oluehi.

Nigeria is third in Group A and next plays South Korea in Grenoble on Wednesday.
