In the opening match of the World Cup, Canada and Nigeria played to a 0-0 draw.
Super Falcon’s goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie was the standout performer, making several crucial saves, including a penalty stop against Canadian star Christine Sinclair.
Sinclair, the all-time leading scorer in international soccer, missed the opportunity to give Canada the lead.
Nnadozie’s impressive performance continued throughout the game, denying shots from inside the box.
Both goalkeepers, including Canada’s Kailen Sheridan, made key saves to keep the match scoreless.
With the draw, both teams will need to secure victories in their next group-stage matches to have a better chance of advancing.
Canada will face Ireland in their next game, while Nigeria will play against the co-hosts, Australia.
