2023 FIFA WWC: We Know How To Handle Nigeria – Australia’s Defender Grant

Australia’s defender Charlie Grant has claimed that the Matildas understand how to play against the Super Falcons of Nigeria ahead of their second group B encounter.

Australia leads group B with 3pts after a narrow 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland followed by Canada and Nigeria after both teams shared the spoils on Friday.

Grant believes that their match against Ireland was difficult because the Irish team sat deep but they expect Super Falcons to open their game.

”It’ll probably be a bit more of an open game on Thursday because Ireland do sit in a block and Nigeria do like to press high.

“So it might even give them more of an opportunity to shine even more”, she said.

Nigeria’s Super Falcons will square up against the Matildas of Australia in their next group B fixture at the Lang Park Stadium in Brisbane on Thursday (from 11am Nigeria time) with the arena expected to be filled to its 52,000 -capacity.
