Nigeria got their Under-20 Women's World Cup campaign back on track in France on Thursday with a 1-0 win over Haiti.

A 36th minute penalty from Rasheedat Ajibade was enough to bring Nigeria their first points in Group D.

The Super Falconets lost their opening match to Germany 1-0 on Monday.

The win moves Nigeria up to second in the table after two games, three points behind leaders Germany.

China are third, level on points with Nigeria, with Haiti bottom - still without a point.

Nigeria's final group game will be against China on Monday.

There are four groups of four with the top two teams progressing to the quarter-final stage.

Ghana's hopes of qualifying to the last eight were dashed with a 4-0 defeat to the Netherlands on Wednesday. (BBC)
