The NGA-W vs KOR-W Dream11 match preview –

Two giants of either continent face off in their second game of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 as Nigeria takes on Korea on Wednesday.

Nigeria Women are coming off a difficult loss in the last game where they were unable to showcase their true potential. The side had ten shots out of which only two landed on target. They were just as aggressive as their opponents but weren’t clinical at all. This might be the chance they needed to better themselves.

Meanwhile, Korea Women too were outclassed in their own previous fixture. They went up against the hosts in France and were dominated for the entire 90 minutes, leading up to the score line of 4-0. They lacked potency in attack, and their defence too lost focus more often than not. These are the two issues that need to be worked upon before they go up against a physical side such as Nigeria.
