Germany booked their place in the last eight of the World Cup but were never at their best against a determined Nigerian side which is now eliminated with one match to play. 
There was early promise for Germany as Simone Laudehr latched onto a Birgit Prinz pass before being denied by Precious Dede, who also needed to make a save from Kim Lulig's strike.
Germany continued to dominate possession but found it difficult to break down a strong and well organised Nigerian defence. The hosts lost Melanie Behringer through injury with Alexandra Popp replacing her but they could still make no impression against their opponents.
Nine minutes into the second half, Germany finally got themselves in front when a Celia Okoyino Da Mbabi free kick was not dealt with by the defence and Laudehr was on hand to fire the ball home.
Chances were few at either end and as the game wore on, Nigeria were forced to push further forward in an attempt to keep their hopes alive. Germany were content to keep hold of their one-goal lead and kept Nigeria firmly at bay until the whistle but the result means they must now beat France in their final game if they are to finish on top of the group.
Germany: Nadine Angerer, Saskia Bartusiak, Babett Peter, Kim Kulig, Annike Krahn, Simone Laudehr, Melanie Behringer (sub Alexandra Popp 31mins), Celia Okoyino Da Mbabi (sub Fatmire Bajramaj 87mins), Birgit Prinz (sub Inka Grings 53mins), Linda Bresonik, Kerstin Garefrekes.

Nigeria: Precious Dede, Faith Ikidi, Osinachi Ohale, Perpetua Nkwocha, Onome Ebi, Helen Ukaonu, Stella Mbachu (sub Francisca Ordega 85mins), Ebere Orji (sub Amenze Aighewi 63mins), Desire Oparanozie, Rita Chikwelu, Sarah Michael (sub Uchechi Sunday 70mins).
