France secure Women's World Cup win over Nigeria after VAR saves the day

For the second straight game, France benefited from a VAR decision, taking back-to-back penalty kicks after Nigerian goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie moved off her line -- a situation that also happened in France's previous game against Norway. It was the only bright moment of a disappointing evening for the French, yet they got the 1-0 win they wanted on Monday night.

Wendie Renard scored her third goal of the tournament after retaking her penalty kick in the 79th minute, becoming the second French...

Hosts France preserved their perfect record to top Group A at the women's World Cup with a 1-0 win against 10-woman Nigeria thanks to Wendie Renard's 79th minute penalty awarded after a video review on Monday.

Renard's first attempt hit the outside of the post but the kick had to be retaken because Chiamaka Nnadozie had moved off her line -- a situation that also happened in France's previous game against Norway -- and the centre-back coolly converted.

Nigeria took their chances against the run of play on Wednesday to beat South Korea 2-0 for rare success at the Women's World Cup to set themselves up to advance to the next stage of the tournament in France.

A first half own goal at the Stade des Alps and a breakaway attack, brilliantly finished by Asisat Oshoala, ensured the Africa champions only their fourth win in eight World Cup finals appearances and a chance to go to the second round for just a second time.

Norway cruised to a 3-0 victory in their Group A opener Saturday.

Ada Hegerberg was not needed as Norway kicked off their women's World Cup Group A campaign with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Nigeria on Saturday in Reims, France.

Without Ballon d'Or winner Hegerberg, who quit international football in 2017 due to a dispute with her home federation, the 1995 champions relied on goals by Guro Reiten, Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland and an own goal by Osinachi Ohale to prevail.

The result put Norway in second place in Group A behind hosts France, who thrashed South...

Nigeria Super Falcons ready to fulfil potential - Dennerby

Nigeria have been unable to translate their dominance of African football into consistent success at the FIFA Women's World Cup, but coach Thomas Dennerby says his side have the potential to reach the latter stages of the upcoming tournament in France.

The Super Falcons have played at every World Cup since the inaugural event in 1991, but they have progressed beyond the first round just once -- reaching the quarterfinals in 1999, when it was still a 16-team tournament.

"Our ambition is to get to...
