- Nigeria 0-0 Canada, women’s world cup 2023 Group B
Nigeria take on Canada in the second Group B match of the FIFA Women’s World Cup at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
Canada, the reigning Olympic champion, is ranked seventh in the world, while Nigeria is ranked 40th.
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.
