“It’s a huge honour being in the Super Falcons. The U-20 experience was great; some of the players are still here and I am excited to play with them. I am equally excited to meet the new players as well and learn from the ones that are more experienced than I am. I also relish the fact that I will be playing against the United States where I live.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool Ladies striker, Asisat Oshoala was also full of expectations of going back to Canada to excel with the Super Falcons. “It’s good to be back with the team. I look forward to the World Cup in Canada to excel with my team. It feels really good,” Oshoala said.
