Womens World Cup: Thrilling encounter between Nigeria and Sweden

Super Falcons of Nigeria played out a 3-3 draw against Sweden in their opening group match at the ongoing FIFA Womens World Cup in Canada.
Sweden took the lead though Desire Oparanozie's unfortunate own goal after 20' of play before long, they also netted from a poor clearance to finish the first 45 minutes 2-0.

The Falcons came out firing with some brilliance in the second half which paid off as Ngozi Okobi and Asisat Oshoala scored to level up with the Europeans.

A good build up from the Swedes saw them secure a third goal but Francisca Ordega salvaged it for the Africans as she fired home with just three minutes in the match.
