Nigeria earns 4th World Cup win, 2-0 over South Korea

Nigeria earns 4th World Cup win, 2-0 over South Korea GRENOBLE, France — Asisat Oshoala became the second Nigerian player to score in two different Women's World Cup tournaments with a late goal in a 2-0 victory over South Korea on Wednesday. Chidinma Okeke chipped the ball past the South Korean defence in the 75th minute and Oshoala chased it down, slipped past Hwang Bo-ram and drew the keeper off her line before sliding it into an open goal from a tight angle. Nigeria took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute at Stade des Alpes when South Korea's Kim Do-yeon volleyed the ball into her own net.

Germany advanced to the Women's World Cup quarterfinals for the eighth straight time, beating African champion Nigeria 3-0 Saturday at Grenoble, France.

Germany captain Alexandra Popp, playing in her 100th international match, scored in the 20th minute. Sara Däbritz made it 2-0 in the 27th with a penalty kick and Lea Schüller got the final goal in the 82nd.

Second-ranked Germany, which has outscored opponents 9-0, plays the winner of Monday's match between Sweden and Canada on June 29 at Rennes, a weeklong layoff that gives time for midfielder Dzsenifer Marozsán's broken toe to heal. The Germans, who won the tournament in 2003 and 2007, have never failed to reach the quarterfinals.

Germany gets another 1-0 win at World Cup, beating Spain

Germany gets another 1-0 win at World Cup, beating Spain VALENCIENNES, France — Germany is finding it far from easy going at the World Cup. Against a skilful Spain, the two-time world champions relied on Sara Däbritz's goal in the 42nd minute for the win Wednesday. It was second-ranked Germany's second successive 1-0 victory in Group B. Germany earned three points for an opening round 1-0 win over China. The Germans, who have always reached at least the quarterfinals at Women's World Cups, had to overcome slack defence before taking the lead. Spain's lack of production spared Germany an upset to the 13th-ranked team that is playing in only its second World Cup.

No. 38 Nigeria was in the knockout phase for the second time, the first since it lost in the quarterfinals to Brazil in 1999, and it joined Cameroon to become the first pair of African teams to reach the knockout stage in the same Women's World Cup. The Indomitable Lionesses play England on Sunday.

Popp scored on a 4-yard header off Lina Magull's corner kick, her 48th international goal. A video review upheld the goal after determining Svenja Huth, who was in an offside position, did not obstruct the view of goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie.

Däbritz scored on a low penalty kick beyond the outstretched left hand of Nnadozie, her third goal of the tournament and 13th of her international career. Evelyn Nwabuoko had tried to clear a ball but made a studs-up follow through into Magull, causing the penalty.

France goes 3-0 at World Cup with 1-0 win over Nigeria

France goes 3-0 at World Cup with 1-0 win over Nigeria France completed World Cup group play with a 3-0 record for the first time, beating Nigeria 1-0 Monday night at Rennes when Wendie Renard converted a penalty kick in the 79th minute after missing her first attempt but getting a second chance. France will play a third-place team on Sunday at Le Havre in the round of 16, and the winner will advance to a quarterfinal against the United States, Sweden or Spain. Referee Melissa Borjas of Honduras awarded the penalty kick when Viviane Asseyi was knocked over by Ngozi Ebere, a call upheld in a video review and one that drew vehement protests from the Super Falcons.

Nigeria had an excellent chance to cut its deficit in the 50th when second-half substitute Rasheedat Ajibade streaked up a flank and passed to an open Desire Oparanozie, but the ball was just ahead of the forward and rolled by.

Schüller got her ninth international goal following a giveaway by Halimatu Ayinde.

The Super Falcons were missing defender Ngozi Ebere and midfielder Rita Chikwelu, who served suspensions for yellow card accumulation, and forward Asisat Oshoala, who was injured.

Surprising Sweden ousts Germany at the Women's World Cup.
RENNES, France — Stina Blackstenius scored the go-ahead goal just minutes into the second half and Sweden surprised Germany with a 2-1 quarterfinal victory Saturday night at the Women's World Cup. The second-ranked Germans, who won back-to-back World Cup titles in 2003 and 2007, were the presumptive favourites on their side of the bracket. Instead, they'll head home. Ninth-ranked Sweden goes on to face the Netherlands in a semifinal match on Wednesday in Lyon. The Dutch defeated Italy 2-0 earlier Saturday. The United States plays England in the other semifinal on Tuesday. The final is July 7.
