Courtesy of a rough tackle from Lawrence, Nigeria get a free kick from the left side about 25m out.

Lawrence is given a yellow for the offence.

The ball is chipped into the middle, finding Alozie’s feet.

She immediately attempts for goal, but the ball is deflected away by a close-in Canadian defender.

It ends up being cleared away from the left corner.
