Ireland- Sinead Farrelly

After a long road back to football, not only did Sinead Farrelly make the Irish National Team, but she also started for her home country. The forward played 63 total minutes in her first World Cup fixture, but unfortunately, Ireland lost to Australia, 1-0.

With one game played, Ireland is at the bottom of Group B with zero points.

Nigeria- Ifeoma Onumonu

Ifeoma Onumonu also made her World Cup debut. The American-born Nigerian received the start for Nigeria, and she played 85 minutes in the 0-0 draw against Canada. The Super Falcons were able to hold on and earn the point against a strong Canadian side.

Nigeria is currently tied with Canada after one match played in Group B. Both sides have one point each.

Neither Kristie Mewis, Kelley O'Hara, nor Lynn Williams started for the USWNT in the 3-0 win over Vietnam. However, O'Hara was substituted on in the 84th minute. The Gotham FC and US veteran helped close out the match and kept Vietnam off the scoresheet.
