Oshoala confident of Super Falcons

29 September 2014, 11:19Israel Ojoko

Abuja – Super Falcons star Asisat Oshoala has her eyes set on winning the 2014 African Women Championship (AWC) in Namibia next month after her goals and efforts failed to win the FIFA Under-20 world cup for Nigeria, in Canada.

The gangling striker who emerged the top scorer and most valuable player at U-20 World Cup in Canada said she and her teammates, some of which were in the team that lost in the final to Germany in Canada, have resolved to regain the title they lost two years ago in Equatorial Guinea.

Oshoala who is one of the players listed to receive national honours on Monday in Abuja said she will be looking forward to her first senior cup title by giving the AWC her best shot.

"We know the task ahead of us in Namibia is not going to be easy but we are determined to win the cup and go back to the world cup in Canada as African champions," she stated

Meanwhile, the fight to make the final 21 member cut for the AWC is heating up thereby giving the coaches selection problems even before the arrival of the invited foreign professionals.

Coach Edwin Okon said that the players are in the best form of their lives and although he admits it is not easy dropping any of them but that he would submit his final list on Monday, 29 September.
