Oshoala Parries Lack Of Goals At AWCON 2018

Female national team, Super Falcons’ striker, Assiat Oshoala has come out to downplay her inability to score in Wednesday’s 4-0 victory against Zambia, as she says her target is for collective glory with the team.

After hitting the post once and setting up one of the goals, Oshoala said she was just happy to be part of the winning team and believes the Falcons have returned to title-winning form at the Africa Women Cup of Nations.

The China-based three-time African Female Footballer of The Year has now turned her attention on Saturday’s last group match against Equatorial Guinea and believes it is the game that will confirm Nigeria’s semi-final spot at AWCON 2018.

It would also take them closer to one of three tickets for next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, and Oshoala says she will continue giving her best for the team and, even if she does not score, she will continue targeting collective glory ahead of personal honours.

Oshoala stated: “I am not worried, as long as the team keeps winning and doing well, I am happy. But I know that I will soon start scorin g and we will win the cup again.”
