Hurt Irish team say they have “business to finish with Nigeria”

Republic of Ireland, who have been knocked out of the Fifa Women’s World Cup, have said they will “fight like hell” to beat Nigeria in their final group game.

Ireland have lost two out of two and are bottom of a group, which Nigeria tops. The Super Falcons were held to 0-0 draw against Canada before beating Australia 3-2.

Ireland, meanwhile, fell 1-0 to Australia before losing 2-1 to Canada.

“You will never see us give up,” winger Sheva said.

“I am so proud of this team for that reason. We will go into that next game in Brisbane and we will fight like hell.

“We will try to come back with a result for Ireland, the fans who came out here to watch us and to show just how good this team is.

“You saw it at times. We’re so close to being one of the best teams in the world, everyone can see that.

“With this being our first tournament, the fact we are so disappointed that we held Canada to a 2-1 and it could have been a very different result, I think you see that.

“We’ll be back but we definitely have business to finish with Nigeria.”

Ireland, who have nothing to lose, will face table-topping Nigeria on Monday.
