Nigeria’s Super Falcons will face co-host Australia, debutants Republic of Ireland and Canada in next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup after Saturday’s draw brought the four teams together in Group B.
Nigeria, the only African team and one of the few nations to have made it to every edition of the global showpiece were drawn in Pot 4 ahead of the final draw as a result of its current FIFA ranking (45).
Randy Waldrum’s ladies finished fourth at this year’s WAFCON and will have to improve on results from the recent outings to stand a chance to make it out of the group.
In what is considered an open group, Nigeria will do well to get off to a good start against the CONCACAF team before keeping dates with Australia and Ireland.
Nigeria’s last meeting with Australia in the World Cup was in 2015 which ended in a 3-3 draw.
Nigeria will face Australia, Ireland and Canada in the group phase of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
