Matildas wary of Nigerian threat in pivotal Women’s World Cup clash | Women’s World Cup 2023

“Score a goal and not get scored against.” That was Matildas midfielder Tameka Yallop’s light-hearted answer when asked how Australia would go about beating Nigeria, their Women’s World Cup group B opponents, in Brisbane on Thursday evening.

But the answer belied the seriousness with which the Matildas are taking the challenge posed by Nigeria. If Australia win, it will guarantee progression to the round of 16 – with one match to spare. The Matildas are not underestimating their opponents, though, who looked dangerous in a goalless opening encounter with Canada on Friday.
