In the 50th minute, Canada was given a penalty opportunity, but Nigerian goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie made an impressive save to deny 40-year-old forward Christine Sinclair’s shot.

Despite this, both teams adopted a more assertive and aggressive style of play in the remaining time, yet they were unable to score any goals, according to a report.
