  5. Opening game pedigree

    FT: Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    Norway had won six of their seven opening games at the Women’s World Cup - make that seven in eight!

    The only time they have lost was back in 1991 (a thumping 4-0 defeat to China).

  6. FULL-TIME - Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    There's the full-time whistle and 1995 winners Norway have got off to a perfect start in France.

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    The game is just petering-out now, but Nigeria are still trying to push forward to find that elusive goal.

    Into the final two minutes...

    There will be six minutes added on for stoppages at the end of this one.

  10. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    Guro Reiten receives treatment on the turf as we tick into the 90th minute. Fatigue appears to be kicking in for all involved now.

  11. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    This game is nearing its conclusion now and I don't think Nigeria are going to cause a late upset, but a consolation goal would be good for morale heading into the next two games.

  12. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    It's nearly disaster for Nigeria goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi - who has had a decent game despite the scoreline - as the ball trickles behind for a corner after she spills Caroline Graham Hansen's shot.

  13. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    The attendance has just been called out at the ground and the official figure is 11,508.

    As a Coventry City fan, I doubt we'll see a tenth of that at 'home' games in Birmingham next season!

    Lisa-Marie Utland's race is run and she is replaced by Elise Thorsnes.

  15. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    Norway have had just one shot on target in this half as they look to hold on to their clean sheet at the other end.

    It's worth remembering that progress into the round of 16 could come down to goal difference.

  16. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    Nigeria nearly open their account for the 2019 Women's World Cup as Asisat Oshoala goes around the Norway goalkeeper but she rolls the ball into the side netting.

    The Norwegian defence were backtracking and her touch around the keeper forced her wide.

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    It's a good chance for Nigeria as Asisat Oshoala arrives late into the Norwegian box, but her side foot effort is blocked by the legs of Ingrid Systad Engen.

  18. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    Nigeria are 3-0 down but it doesn't stop Rita Chikwelu from bringing out the party tricks.

    The forward flicks the ball over her marker before collecting it in the Norwegian box, straight after being thrown the ball.

    Nicely done!

  19. Post update

    Norway 3-0 Nigeria

    The Norwegian midfielder is OK and play resumes with a drop ball to Nigeria.

    The Falcons were just starting to get into that rhythm before the halt in play.

    With less than half an hour to play, can they find a way back into this?
