2023WWC: What Asisat Oshoala Said After Nigeria’s Win Against Australia

Asisat Oshoala is ecstatic about Nigeria’s victory over Australia in the 2023 Women’s World Cup, claiming that the Super Falcons have a lot to offer.

On Thursday, the Barcelona Femeni forward created history by scoring Nigeria’s third goal in a 3-2 triumph over the co-hosts.

The forward voiced hope about the team’s future after the game, which puts Coach Randy Waldrum’s girls in charge of Group B.

“I am going to give kudos to my teammates, everyone played their hearts out. No one knows what this team is made of,” she said in her post-match interview.

“We only have to come to the field and show the kind of heart that we have. This team has a lot to offer and the world saw that today.”

While Oshoala was a doubt for the game, the former Arsenal star came on in the second half of the clash and made an instant impact.

And for her, helping the team achieve their goal is much more important than personal glory.

“Sometimes you need to make a decision for the team and to be honest, I wasn’t feeling too well but I am not a selfish person,” she added.

“If someone is not 100%, then other people can step up, this is why we have 23 players in the team. The players stepped up. It does not matter where I start, what is most important is the team results.”

She is now the only African player to have scored in three successive Women’s World Cups. She won in both the 2015 and 2019 editions.

Oshoala’s squad, which is now top of the group standings, only needs a point in their next game against Ireland on Monday to advance to the knockout stage for the second time in a row.

They have four points, the same as Canada, while Australia has three and Ireland has none.
