Nigeria WNT, the Super Falcons, will remain in Brisbane having reached the knockout stages of the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the third time in their history.
Randy Waldrum’s team confirmed their place among the best 16 countries in the world with a hard earned draw against Republic of Ireland, on Monday.
The Super Falcons finished second place in the group, meaning they will stay in Brisbane for their next match at the tournament.

Staying in Brisbane for their next match seems like a positive advantage as they’ll have time to rest.
Nigeria had plenty of success in the city; it was the scene of their stunning 3-2 win over Australia.
They’ll be looking to match their best ever performance at the Women’s World Cup – a quarter-final appearance in 1999.
The Super Falcons will find out their next opponents later Tuesday (today).
