Australia vs Nigeria : A Preview, Prediction, Start time

The Matildas and the Super Falcons will face off in a crucial Group B match at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Thursday, July 28. Both teams are coming off without losing their opening games, and a victory in this match would put them in a strong position to advance to the knockout stages.

The Matildas are the tournament co-hosts and are ranked 10th in the world as per the rankings released on June 9th, 2023. They started their campaign with a 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland, thanks to a goal from Steph Catley. The Matildas are led by star striker Sam Kerr, who is the all-time leading scorer for Australia in international football.

Nigeria, on the other hand, Have won the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations a record 11 times, are the most successful side in African women’s football. They are now rated 40th in the world as per the latest rankings released on June 9th 2023, and they drew 1-1 with Canada to open their World Cup run. Asisat Oshoala, the current African Women’s Footballer of the Year, is the team’s manager.

This match is sure to be a close and exciting contest. Both teams have talented players and have shown that they are capable of winning. The match will be played at Brisbane Stadium, which is expected to be packed with fans.

Key Players to Watch

Sam Kerr (Australia): The Matildas’ all-time leading scorer, Kerr is a world-class striker who can score goals from anywhere. She is a threat to score every time she gets the ball.

Asisat Oshoala (Nigeria): The reigning African Women’s Footballer of the Year, Oshoala is a dynamic forward who can create and score goals. She is a nightmare for defenders and is always a threat to score.

Steph Catley (Australia): A versatile defender who can play at left back or center back, Catley is a key member of the Matildas’ defense. She is strong in the air and is a good passer of the ball.

Onome Ebi (Nigeria): A veteran defender who has played in three World Cups, Ebi is a rock at the back for the Super Falcons. She is a strong tackler and is always willing to put her body on the line.


This match is sure to be a close contest, but I think the Matildas will edge out the Super Falcons. The Matildas have a more balanced team and are more experienced at this level. I predict a 2-1 victory for the Matildas.
