It is not my wish to miss the penalty – Asisat Oshola


The victorious Super Falcons of Nigeria who touched down yesterday evening at the Nnamdi Azikiwe’s Airport with as a the renowned  9th CAF AWCON title holder.

Speaking to journalists at the airport was the former African player of the year Asisat Oshoala.

It was a very good, interestingly we came out successful ,we retained our trophy which was our primary aims and we are going for the 2019 World Cup obviously as a team.
It was a tough, it wasn’t easy but we eventually pulled through as a team to retain the trophy.
Rating African football in  the women’s category, i would say a lot has changed presently, there is more competitive play than in the past.
You could actually see during the tournament teams who were years back like the under dogs,  came out impressively good this time around to battle for a slot in the 2019 World Cup  , which shows you Africa women football is developing greatly.
Concerning my flaws at the tournament, it was not my wish to miss the penalty, i will say this as a professional, this is football for you,it happens in one’s career, i wasn’t fixed and programmed like a machine not to make mistakes, i am human like everyone else , even top shots like Messi, Rolnaldo misses target sometimes, all that was needed to be done at that time, was to encourage my team mates to fight to the end, that’s team spirit and bond shared between us.
For the  2019 World Cup be rest assured we will give our best as expected of us and make Nigeria proud as we have always did the former Liverpool FC player concluded.
