Nigeria have been eliminated from the 2019 Women’s World Cup, following a 3-0 defeat to Germany on Saturday.

The Super Falcons were the last team that qualified for the Round of 16 stage and were tasked with inflicting a first loss on the Europeans.

But their early resistance was broken, after Alexandra Popp headed in the first goal unmarked in the 20th minute.

Just seven minutes later, Sara Daebritz doubled the German’s advantage from the spot, after a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decision against Evelyn Nwabuoku.

Although Nigeria came out for the second half much improved, they failed to find the back of the net and conceded a third with eight minutes left.

Their exit leaves Cameroon as the only African team left in the tournament.
