Perpetua Nkwocha gave Nigeria a 1-0 win over Canada in a Group A match between two teams already eliminated at the women's World Cup and which was delayed by a floodlight malfunction.

The veteran scored in the 75th minute of a lackluster game most notable for the electronic breakdown of the floodlights, which stopped the game for a dozen minutes.

Both teams lost their first two matches but Nigeria finished third, six points behind Germany and three back from France. The result was especially disappointing for Canada, which was ranked sixth in the world going into the tournament.
