Norway thump Falcons 3-0 in W’Cup opener

Dr. Alhosani talking to the Super Falcons on anti-doping…yesterday

Mistakes from Oluehi and Ebi after what should have been a routine goal kick then led to the third goal, with Isabell Herlovsen's right-wing cross diverted into her own net by Ohale.

Norway forward Emilie Nautnes has disclosed her side's readiness to light up the Stade Auguste-Delaune with goals when they take on Nigeria on Saturday.

The Norway team have won six of the seven opening matches they have played in the FIFA Women's World Cups over the years. We were on top of the match all the time [here] but against France it will be a totally different match, they are much more attacking than we are.

"When it comes to sports, never ever give up".

"Caroline and Guro have been very good for us for a long time so I am not surprised these two made such a great performance".

"A game can change in the last minute". Hosts France posted a 4-0 victory over South Korea in the tournament opener Friday night in Paris. This football play between Norway and Nigeria has to be without a doubt spectacular.

The first penalty came after a handball by South Africa captain Janine van Wyk and the second after follow through tackle by full back Nothando Vilakazi on Garcia which earned Vilakazi a second yellow card and a dismissal.

The goals were scored in the first half to condemn the nine-time African champions to their 17th defeat in World Cup finals.

Norway goalkeeper Ingrid Hjelmseth became only the fourth player to appear at a Women's World Cup aged 39 or older, after Brazil's Meg (1995), Nigeria's Perpetua Nkwocha (2015) and USA's Christie Pearce (2015).
