Nigeria will face hosts France, Norway and South Korea in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, reports Futbalgalore.com.
There was a sharp intake of breath from the audience when the Super Falcons drew hosts France on Saturday evening.
It only happens every four years, and finally in a star-studded ceremony at the La Seine Musicale on the island of Île Seguin, Boulogne-Billancourt, the group stages of the World Cup were decided.
Nigeria and France were sent on a World Cup collision course in Group A and were joined by top European side Norway and South Korea in what will inevitably be dubbed the ‘Group of Death’.
Group B has Germany, China, Spain and South Africa, with Australia, Italy, Brazil and Jamaica making up Group C.
Defending champions Japan have it a bit tougher with England, Scotland and Argentina standing in their way in Group D.
Cameroon have Canada, New Zealand and Netherlands in Group E.
USA, who are chasing their fourth World Cup triumph, should be confident of reaching the next stage after drawing Thailand, Chile and Sweden in Group F.
The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be the eighth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup (formerly the Women’s World Championship), the quadrennial international women’s association football championship contested by the national teams of the member associations of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) between 7 June and 7 July 2019.
