Asisat Oshoala became the second Nigerian player to score in two different Women's World Cup tournaments with a late goal in a 2-0 victory over South Korea on Wednesday.

An own-goal by South Korea's KIM Doyeon and Asisat Oshoala's 75th-minute solo effort helped Nigeria's Super Falcons get their 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup campaign back on track on Tuesday.

The Koreans who were also pummeled 4-0 in their opening game against France tried hard to pull level but they were denied.

Nigeria went ahead when defender Kim Do-yeon volleyed past her own keeper.

There was, though, a lengthy review by the Video Assistant Referee to check on what looked a close handball call against the Nigeria captain as the ball flew past her on the way towards the empty net.

The 24-year-old forward, who was named Player-of-The-Match, was praised by Nwadike, who believes there's still more to come from the three-time African Women's Footballer of The Year.

"Of course we have more confidence after scoring the first goal".

Nigeria lost their opening game 3-0 to Norway. The group is wide open now.

South Africa will lock horns with China on Thursday evening.

Spain had more possession, but Germany looked more risky despite missing the injured Dzsenifer Marozsan. Now we go to play France, a really good team.
