This online news medium had reported that the west Africans were on Saturday bashed 3-0 by Norway in their first match at the competition in France.
However, an own goal from the Asians with a swift counter-attack finish by Barcelona forward Asisat Oshoala gave Nigeria all three points in a Group A showdown in Grenoble.
And Nigerian fans have described the win as impressive, urging the team to keep the momentum as they go against hosts France in their next match.
Concise News captured some of the reactions as seen below:

Woman of the match for me is 36 yrs old Onome Ebi who marshalled the defence and ensured 18 yrs old goalie, Nnadozie kept a clean sheet and Nigeria's first ever on her debut. #NGAKOR
