Women’s World Cup: Super Falcons have a lot to offer, says Oshoala

Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala has said the team has a lot to offer following their huge 3-2 win against Co-hosts of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia.

Oshoala, who came on in the second half, scored in the 72nd minute to put the Falcons 3-1 ahead.

She has now scored in three consecutive World Cups becoming the first African woman to achieve the feat.

The win took the Falcons to the top spot in Group B, with Canada in second, Australia third, and the Republic of Ireland bottom.

Speaking in her postmatch interview, Oshoala praised her teammates for stepping up to the challenge.

“Like I said earlier this team has a lot to offer everyone and the world have seen that today,“ she said.

“Sometimes you have to make team decisions to be honest I wasn’t feeling too well I’m not a selfish person, this is why we have 23 players for the World Cup. If someone is not 100 per cent others can step up and as we can see they all stepped up on the pitch today.“

The Barcelona striker stated that it doesn’t matter to her whether she is in the starting 11 but the most important thing is the team result.

She added that each tournament she attends she lways make sure she give everything for her teammates and the Nigerian badge.

The Falcons will play Ireland in their final Group B game on Monday, July 31.

A draw will be enough to secure qualification into the round of 16.
