D’Tigress finds themselves in Group B alongside the host country France, Canada, and the formidable Australian team. The much-anticipated showdown between Nigeria and Australia is set for July 29th.

After their first match, D’Tigress will meet the French team on August 1st for their second group stage game. They will then wrap up their group stage journey against Canada three days later, on August 4th. All these group stage matches will take place at the impressive Pierre-Mauroy Stadium in Lille.

Despite showcasing remarkable performances at the World Cup, D’Tigress has yet to taste victory at the Olympic Games since their debut appearance. The team is undoubtedly eager to make history by securing their first Olympic win in Paris.
