The win for Norway sets up a highly anticipated Group A clash against tournament hosts France, who thrashed South Korea in the opening game.

Norway took the lead in the first half and the expectation of Nigerians was that the Super Falcons would soar in the second half, but they could not as the match ended 3-0.

The 1995 winners played without Ada Hegerberg, the 2018 FIFA Ballon d'Or victor who stepped down from the national team because of what she says are differences in the way the federation treats the men's and women's teams.

Germany's teenage midfielder Giulia Gwinn scored a second-half victor as the two-time world champions edged past China 1-0 to kick off their World Cup campaign.

Utland doubled the lead with a powerful shot which Norway celebrated with a fake team selfie, before Ohale's attempted clearance from Isabell Herlovsen's cross ended up in her own net.

The latter did have several chances in the final 30 minutes though and Asisat Oshoala missed two chances in as many minutes that could have gotten her side on the scoresheet, and potentially back into the match. Arguably the world's best active player, Hegerberg is not playing at the 2019 Women's World Cup of Soccer because she believes that Norwegian Soccer does not treat their women's program equally to their men's program.

The last Norway's match was against China.
