There was a 3-0 defeat dished out to Nigeria against Norway in their opening World cup. This will represent their best chance of picking up any points in this group stage. The same can be said of South Korea as well of course. Nigeria are now W2 L4 in their last six fixtures, losing their last two. The two wins that they did record in that sequence happened against Slovakia and Thailand. That was part of their Cyprus Women’s Cup tournament back in March, losing the other two games at the event. In their last six games, Nigeria have earned just one clean sheet. They are the highest ranked of the CAF representatives taking part at the tournament.
South Korea had a tough night in Paris against hosts France in the opening game of the tournament. They were just on the back foot from the very start of the affair and could barely get a decent kick of the ball. They ended up losing that fixture 4-0. That is a four-match winless streak of form that the South Korea team are on at the moment now, losing three of those. Back in the FFA Cup of Nation they did take clean sheets wins over Argentina and New Zealand, both of which are in this tournament. So that could at least give them believe that they can target a good three points in this one.
South Korea looks the better of the two sides here, despite their opening result. The fact that they got a couple of notable wins earlier this calendar year against stronger opposition in the Cyprus Cup does indicate that they could be the ones who are more likely to collect the victory. South Korea to win.
