What channel is Australia vs Nigeria? TV schedule, live stream details for Women's World Cup 2023 match – Sporting News


Australia will be aiming to win their second match in a row in Group B when they face off against Nigeria at Brisbane Stadium on July 27 in the Women’s World Cup.
The Matildas were made to work hard in their opening-night win over the Republic of Ireland without injured superstar Sam Kerr, but they were able to get the job done and have qualification from the group in their own hands.
Nigeria showed a surprising defensive solidity in their opening game against Canada in Melbourne, where goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie saved a penalty from Christine Sinclair, helping her team to claim a 0-0 draw.
They will hope to keep a clean sheet once again against an Australia attack lacking in star power.
Australia’s match against Nigeria will be shown on free-to-air television in Australia, with the match being broadcast on Channel 7 and streaming platform 7Plus in addition to Optus Sport.
The Matildas opening game against Ireland was seen by up to 4.88 million people on Channel 7 in Australia, with an average of 1.74 million viewers around the country, being one of the highest figures for a women’s sporting match in the nation.
The match will also be shown live around the world. Here is a list of broadcasters carrying the fixture:
Australia are still expected to get the job done against Nigeria despite the absences of Kerr and Mary Fowler.
Their attack is undeniably weaker, though, leading bookmakers to predict a low-scoring affair of fewer than 2.5 goals.
