    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Onema Grace Geyoro replaces Gaetane Thiney and goes off to rapturous applause from the French supporters.


    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Chiamaka Nnadozie makes a crucial save as Eugenie Le Sommer is free at the back post to nod a deep cross into the ground.

    It bounces off the turf and up towards the keeper's right post but she scrambles across to deny Le Sommer.

  3. Controversial? Not really...

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    You may not like it - but that decision was not controversial. Football's law changes came into effect on 1 June, with one of them being this one:

    The goalkeeper must have one of her feet partly on the goalline (or above it if jumping) when the kick is taken. She cannot stand behind or in front of the line.

    More here.

    Prince Gymiah: How many French players encroached the penalty box before the penalty was kicked in both the first and second penalty? Ridiculous #VAR decision.

    Hatters: Every single goalkeeper in the world moves off their line when facing a penalty

    Romain Braganza Fernades: This is pure cheating!!! Ok that was a fair penalty.. but a yellow??? And how could that possibly be moving off the line by the goalkeeper??? How many times have we seen other goalies move their lines! Daylight robbery!!!

  5. Post update

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Chiamaka Nnadozie does well to catch a cross from the left. The Nigerian keeper looks distraught.

    I thought she was going to cry when the penalty re-take was awarded.

  6. Post update

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Nigeria are looking to keep things super tight now. They can't afford to concede another goal as their best chance of qualifying as a third-place team with three points, is by having a favourable goal difference.

    They are not quite out of the World Cup yet.


    Nigeria 0-1 France

    Evelyn Nwabuoku will replace Francisca Ordega for Nigeria. Asisat Oshoala is having to come off too with an injury. Anam Imo is her replacement.

    John Smith: Absolute rubbish decision to retake French penalty.

    Waren B: Shame on the FIFA women world cup officials

    Edward Sudbury: Jammy France, a dodgy penalty and even worse that the missed penalty was re-taken. I could understand if the first penalty had been saved but the penalty taker missed!

  9. Post update

    Nigeria 0-1 France

    You have to feel for the Nigerian players. They have been so well organised and have frustrated the French team for over an hour.

  10. Post update

    Nigeria 0-1 France


    There were six and a half minutes between the penalty being awarded initially and the second spot kick being converted.

    Second game in a row that Wendie Renard has been let off the hook. She made sure with the second chance and was not too casual with that one!

  12. GOAL - Nigeria 0-1 France

    Wendie Renard

    Absolutely hammered into the top right corner. Second time lucky!

    The thing about VAR is you are not going to get away with that. She stepped away from the line and the rules are you have to stay on the line.


    Nigeria 0-0 France

    The keeper has moved off her line early!!! It's going to be re-taken!!!!

    Wendie Renard to take again. Madness!

  16. VAR check...

    HANG ON!!!

  17. BreakingMISSED PENALTY

    Nigeria 0-0 France

    Wendie Renard steps up to take the spot kick and the centre-back ends up hitting the left post with a pretty dreadful strike.

    Right decision to award the penalty. In terms of the sending off, there is not much else the referee could have done in that situation.

  19. RED CARD

    Ngoze Ebere

    And a second yellow card for Ngoze Ebere! Oh no, no, no. This is a real game changer!

    The referee gives a red card
