Reigning African best female player, Nigeria’s Super Falcons captain and Barcelona striker, Assisat Lamina Oshoala is in great pains that she and her team mates in the Super Falcons will be missing out in the Tokyo Olympic Games and her suffering under societal yokes while she grew up in Lagos, Nigeria.
Asisat who spoke live from her base in Barcelona Saturday morning on DSTV said the team lost out due to logistic problems but congratulated other female African teams that will be at the Olympics.
She said the newly named Women African Cup of Nations is for us “to redeem our image and improve our Branding. The Super Falcons have won the African Women’s Cup a whopping nine times so far from all their rivals but never any trophy at the global level.
Gangling and dangling Assisat was Tuesday crowned the African female footballer of year 2019 for the fourth time equaling the records of her Nigerian compatriot, Perpetual Nkwocha who kept the title in 2004; 2005; 2010 and 2011 as against Oshoala who won it in 2014; 2016 and 2017.
She opined that female football has greater quality and more talented players while she also expressed her feeling that up and coming Super Falcons youngsters Uchenna and Goalkeeper Chiamaka could very soon dominate African and world football.
The Ikorodu born super star (born 9th October 1994) who moved from Liverpool,then Arsenal FC and later China before joining Barca FC lamented that she had enormous societal problems while growing up as a footballer and this mark on her career gave birth to her annual December Charity programme to encourage the younger ones to persevere in their football career.
When chided over her twitter photograph with world football icon, Lionel Messi she smiled and said I get to see him often at training pitches. She had written that she was the closet Nigerian to Messi, a claim that was formerly made by former Super Eagles Goal tender, Vincent Enyeama.
Assisat who has a very important match against the Real Madrid FC female club Saturday said though they won the first leg, the team will give their best to thoroughly trash Real Madrid babes Saturday at the Valdebebas Stadium. She has 9 goals so far for Barca, scoring a hattrick against Athletico Madrid of Spain babes at their last meeting.
