Nigeria has moved to the quarter-finals of the 2018 U-20 Women’s World Cup holding in France, after playing a 1-1 draw with China.
An own goal in stoppage time by China PR earned Nigeria a highly-dramatic 1-1 draw in Dinan-Lehon, with the Nigerian team claiming a spot in the quarter-finals from Group D at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup France 2018.
Needing a victory to leapfrog the Nigerians to the runners-up spot in the group, China were the more dangerous side in the first half at the Stade du Clos Gastel. Mengyu Shen had the first chance of the match on 25 minutes when she hit the Nigeria crossbar. A few minutes later, captain Linlin Wang headed over the target from close range.
