Thelagostimes reports that the Super Falcons lost to the Lionesses of England via a penalty shoot-out in the Round of 16 on Monday.

Nigeria had played a 0-0 draw with England after 120 minutes, and Desire Oparanozie and Michelle Alozie missed their spot-kicks during the penalty shoot-out.

The Super Falcons are expected to be back to Nigeria while England awaits a match with Colombia or Jamaica.
