Nigeria stunned Australia 3-2 on Thursday to leave the co-hosts in danger of an early exit from the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup.

Australia took the lead in injury time at the end of the first half through Emily van Egmond before Uchenna Kanu, Osinachi Ohale and substitute Asisat Oshoala hit back for Nigeria.
