Having gone undefeated in group play, Germany, the two-time Women’s World Cup winner and reigning Olympic champion, begins its quest for a third title on Saturday when it meets Nigeria. It’s the first Round of 16 knockout match of the 2019 Women’s World Cup and goes down at Stade des Alpes in Grenoble. The Germans, ranked No. 2 in the world, have not lost a match in the last nine months. Meanwhile, African champions Nigeria barely advanced to the knockout stage of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 as one of the four best third-place teams.

The Super Falcons are coming off a solid performance against another of the world’s best, France, in group play. A 10-woman Nigerian side played the world’s No. 4 team toe-to-toe for much of the match before a penalty kick in the 79th minute gave France the only score of the game. But even that goal was not without controversy; it came only after VAR ruled that the original penalty kick, which was wide, had to be retaken because goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie had moved off her line.
