“I am very confident that the girls will qualify us for both games. I call and chat with my teammates every time and they tell me the seriousness in training,” Oshoala told Super Eagles media officer Gracious Akujobi in a telephone interview.
“With the level of training and commitment in camp, I believe strongly that the Falcons will qualify for the All Africa Games and Olympics, with or without the presence of the Europe-based players.”
Mali will be the Super Falcons opponents in the final round of qualifiers for the Women’s Football Tournament of the 11th All-Africa Games (AAG), following the withdrawal of Gabon.
