Francisca Ordega's 87th-minute goal pulled Nigeria into a 3-all tie with Sweden in a Women's World Cup match on Monday.

Linda Sembrant came off the bench to put Sweden ahead 3-2 before Ordega's drive sailed between goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl's legs.

Nilla Fischer put Sweden up 2-0 in the first half with a goal in the 31st minute after Nigeria conceded an own goal. Nigeria evened it in the second half when Ngozi Okobi and Asisat Oshoala scored in a 3-minute span.

It was the tournament opener for both teams, who are in Group D along with the United States and Australia. An expanded field of 24 teams is playing in the monthlong World Cup.

Fifth-ranked Sweden, under former U.S. coach Pia Sundhage, faces her former team on Friday in one of the most anticipated matches of the group stage.
