Nine-time African champions, Super Falcons are still very much in the game after an overturned penalty against European Champions England.

England were awarded a controversial penalty for a foul on Rachel Daly, which was then controversially overturned by VAR. Lauren James was kept very quiet by her marker Halimatu Ayinde, and Chiamaka Nnadozie only had a couple of relatively comfortable saves to make.

The Nigerian defenders are really giving star Lauren James time to shine.

Chiamaka Nnadozie is also keeping her feet and hands ready for possible saves in the game in the 48 minutes when Lucy Bronze almost delivered a cross into the box.

More to come…
