Coach of Nigeria's women national team Thomas Dennerby has stated that he is confident in the ability of Nigeria's Super Falcons to bounce back to winning ways ahead of today's Federation Internationale de Football Association women's world cup second group stage game this afternoon between Nigeria and Korea.

At Stade des Alpes, the three-time African Women's Footballer of the Year scored with a brilliant finish in the 75th minute to seal the Super Falcons' first Women's World Cup win at the showpiece.

Asisat Oshoala (2015 and 2019) has become just the second Nigerian to score in two different Women's World Cup tournaments after Rita Nwadike (1995 and 1999).

The Koreans, however, missed some scoring chances and the Thomas Dennerby tutored side was lucky not to have conceded in spite changing the first choice goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi.

The Super Falcons will play their last Group Stage game against France on Monday.

The top two teams from each of the six groups and the four best third-place teams will qualify for the round of 16.
