In the remaining match that took place at the same time, Nigeria also lost to France with a score of 0-1. The only goal of the match was scored by Wendie Renard from the 11th minute in the 79th minute. It was also a very hot match, when the referee had to draw up to 4 yellow cards and 1 red card for Nigeria, while France must also receive a yellow card.
Thus, after the first round matches, France ranked first with 9 points after 3 wins and the same difference 6. Norway ranked 2nd with 3 points with positive difference 3. Although it also got 3 points, but only with a negative score difference of 2, so Nigeria accepted with Korea to leave the game.
