    That's me done for a few hours but join me again later for the third match of the day in Group A as one of the tournament favourites France take on a decent Norway side.

    I'll be live from around 19:30 BST. That match is on BBC Four and you can listen to live commentary on BBC Radio 5 live.

    In the meantime, Germany are up against Spain at 17:00 BST and you can follow that match online and via the BBC Red Button.

    See you soon!

    Here are the goals which gave Nigeria victory. A well-finished own goal and a super counter-attacking move.

  3. How the table looks...

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    That result means Nigeria are level on points with France and Norway, who face off tonight at 20:00 BST.

    Three points should also be enough to see them progress as a "lucky loser" in third place if they don't get a result against France in their final group game.

  4. Post update

    Big celebrations from the Nigeria players. Several fall to the ground with relief and others embrace. The South Korea players looked dejected. They know they HAVE to beat Norway in their final group game to stand any chance of progressing. And like the Alps in the stadium background, that's a tall order.

    Nigeria celebrate

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    A massive three points for Nigeria.

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Yeo Min-ji's drilled cross from the left is easily cleared and Nigeria try to counter. Desire Oparanozie is quickly closed down though, and she has to go back for support.

    Nigeria will look to keep the ball for the final two minutes.

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Yeo Min-ji, who has looked bright since her introduction in the second half, has acres of space to run into but she doesn't use all of it.

    Instead, she opts to shoot from long-range and it lacks power. It's straight into the hands of the keeper.

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Uchenna Kanu has four bodies around her in the box as she looks to try and feed a teammate. There's nobody there and she ends up misplacing it out for a throw-in.

    Another terrific save from the keeper. Yeo Min-ji turns Osinachi Ohale inside out with a smart turn in the box and strikes it well, aiming towards the far post.

    Chiamaka Nnadozie reacts superbly well to dive low to her left and just about gets her hands on it.

    A smart save from Chiamaka Nnadozie at the near post to block a volley. The 18-year-old keeper has looked assured in-between the sticks for Nigeria today.

    Goalscorer Asisat Oshoala is the next player to be taken off by Nigeria - again, to ensure she is fit and fighting for the rest of the tournament.

    She's replaced by Uchenna Kanu.

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    South Korea are running out of time. A patient build-up comes to nothing when Ji So-yun's flick is intercepted in the box.

    But Cho So-hyun finds space to shoot on the right side of the area a few moments later and wins a corner.

  13. Post update

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Asisat Oshoala has become just the second Nigerian to score in two different Woman’s World Cup tournaments after Rita Nwadike.

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    That's Francesca Ordega's last contribution. She's replaced by Anam Imo. Saving her for the final group match against France?

  15. CLOSE!

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Nigeria are running riot. As South Korea push forward, the space in behind is gaping for Nigeria and that only plays into their hands.

    Asisat Oshoala is through one-on-one down the left this time but a heavy touch wastes the opportunity.

    Francesca Ordega then drills a dangerous ball across the face of the goal and it's just about hooked clear.

  16. Against the run of play...again

    Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Here's the possession stats at the moment Asisat Oshoala scored that second goal.

    Looks familiar doesn't it.

  17. GOAL - Nigeria 2-0 South Korea

    Asisat Oshoala

    BRILLIANT goal. What a finish, what a move! That's such a big, big goal for Nigeria.

    Chidinma Okeke uses her pace to knock it past an opponent and then plays a sublime ball through for Asisat Oshoala to chase.

    The Barcelona striker gobbles up the chance, skipping past Hwang Bo-ram, before rounding the keeper and sliding it into the open net from a tight angle.

    That goal had everything! Skill, pace, composure, precision and class. Lovely stuff!

    Nigeria 1-0 South Korea

    Lee Geum-min's cross causes a few problems for the Nigerian keeper as she comes bounding off her line but can only flap it clear under obstruction from her own teammate, Onome Ebi.

    Moon Mi-ra is contesting for it but the flap is enough to keep it out of her reach.

    Onome Ebi

    Nigeria 1-0 South Korea

    It's certainly a feisty one! Hwang Bo-ram is the next player to go into the book for a rough tackle on Rita Chikwelu.

  20. Post update

    Nigeria 1-0 South Korea

    Nigeria's average position map in the second half... it's backs against the wall at the moment. South Korea have looked the better side.

    Can they grab that all-important equaliser?
