Super Facons of Nigeria has stunned the Matildas of Australia, co-host of the 2023 FIFA Women World Cup 3:2 at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane.
Australia took the lead two minutes into regulation time of the first half through Van Egmond, before Uchenna Kanu restored parity four minutes later, as the first half ended one all.
With the hosts leading in ball possession, and the intimidating cheers from the home fans, the African side only had their eyes on the goals. Interestingly Osinachi Ohale found the back of the net in the 65th minute of the game to give momentum as Asisat Oshola doubled the lead 7 minutes later.
Super Falcons then held on before conceding a consolation to record a 3:2 impressive victory over Australia.
Nigeria now leads Group B with four points and superior goal advantage. Their last match is against Ireland who have already crashed out of the tournament with two successive losses.
