Norway and Australia head to extra time!
Australia tied it up in the 83rd minute when Kellond-Knight’s corner missed everyone and went into the back of the net.
Norway nearly won it in stoppage time, but the ball clanged off the post. Onto extra time we go!

Halftime: Norway 1-0 Australia
Herlovsen put Norway up 1-0 at halftime thanks to this goal.
The second and final match of the day between Norway and Australia.
Germany eliminate Nigeria 3-0
A late goal from Lea Schueller finished off Nigeria.
Germany 2, Nigeria 0
[Update 1:10PM EST]: Germany is taking care of business. Alexandra Popp’s 20th minute goal gave Germany an early advantage.
Sara Dabritz (27’) also had a penalty kick conversion and the German squad is business-like and convincing as per the norm.
After an exciting group stage, the 2019 FIFA Women’s World is onto the knockout rounds. Today, the first two games of the Round of 16 kick off in France with Germany facing Nigeria and Norway taking on Australia.
Germany enter their Round of 16 match against Nigeria as the heavy favorites, and they should end the day with a ticket to the quarterfinals. As only one of two teams to concede zero goals in the group stage, Germany will be focused on shutting down the Nigerian attack before finding their way to putting a few goals away.
Norway and Australia will cap the first day of the Round of 16. It’s a big time match for Australia to prove they are for real after an extremely shaky group stage. The Australians were picked before the tournament as a dark horse by many, but giving up five goals in the group stage has shaken the confidence in their defense. For Norway, this match is dangerous. This could be the match that everything “clicks” for Australia, or this could be the day that Norway jumps back into the quarterfinals of the World Cup.
