Norway scored three first-half goals on the way to an easy win over Nigeria in their opening Group A game at the 2019 Women's World Cup in Reims.

The 1995 world champions took the lead when Guro Reiten's shot deflected off Onome Ebi into the net. Lisa-Marie Utland fired through the hands of keeper Tochukwu Oluehi to make it 2-0 before an own goal by Osinachi Ohale compounded Nigeria's misery.

Ingrid Hjelmseth, Norway's 39-year-old goalkeeper, had little to do as Nigeria struggled to carve out chances.

Nigeria will face Korea Republic in their next game on June 12, knowing that another defeat will result in early elimination from the tournament.
