Edem Okon, head coach of Rivers Angels, has said it will take a miracle for the Super Falcons of Nigeria to qualify from their group.
The Nigeria team lost to Norway 3-0 in their Group A opener on Saturday.
The defeat leaves the Falcons third in the group, conceding a goal less than South Korea in bottom. The Korean team lost 4-0 to host and tournament favourites, France last Friday.

Okon stated that it would be extremely difficult for the African champions to qualify for the next phase, saying their next opponents are not pushovers.
“It would take a miracle for the Super Falcons to qualify from the group,” he told Brilafm.
“And the people they are going to play next are not pushovers. Their programmes are very tight. They should just try and see if they can come out of the group.
