Republic of Ireland head coach, Vera Pauw is hopeful they will finish their campaign at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on a winning note.
The Girls in Green, who are making their maiden World Cup appearance, have been eliminated from the competition.
Defeats to co-hosts Australia and Olympic champions, Canada, in their opening two fixtures makes Monday’s (today) clash against nine-time African champions, Super Falcons a mere formality.
The Super Falcons, who sit atop of Group B, need at least a draw to earn a place in the Round of 16.
Pauw claimed his team won’t lay down for the Super Falcons and will fight hard to end the competition with their pride intact.
“We have a fantastic game to play. Nigeria is ranked 52 [in the world] but we all agree now that they are so, so strong.
“That game is crucial for us, for our feeling, our pride and for the tournament,” he was quoted on BBC Sport.
