Nigeria took their chances against the run of play on Wednesday to beat South Korea 2-0 for rare success at the Women's World Cup to set themselves up to advance to the next stage of the tournament in France.

2019 Women's World Cup team previews: South Korea

Considering that South Korea didn't establish its Women's Football Federation until 2001, it's shocking how far the 11th-ranked team in the world has come. A round-of-16 loss in Canada four years ago was a huge step forward for a team that had previously qualified only once. Four years on, can the tough-nosed Taeguk Nangja defy expectations again?

How they got here
