Nigeria lose after late penalty drama
..but they can still qualify for next round
France finished top of Group A after a twice-taken penalty by Wendie Renard gave them victory over Nigeria in an incident-packed Women’s World Cup game.
The initial penalty – awarded after a video assistant referee review for a foul on Viviane Asseyi – hit the post.
But keeper Chiamaka Nnadozie was ruled to have moved off her line early and Renard slotted the re-taken spot kick.
Despite losing 1-0, Nigeria still have a big chance of making the last 16 as one of the best third-placed teams.
