But they needed extra-time to do it, with Lena Petermann scoring the winner in the 98th minute.
Nigeria had greater possession and more chances throughout, but failed to convert, with tournament top scorer Asisat Oshoala disappointing in front of goal.
So it was Petermann's goal which made the difference, an effort from close range after Pauline Bremer's cross.
