The Super Falcons are facing a potential setback ahead of their Group B clash against Australia in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, as star forward Asisat Oshoala is doubtful for the upcoming match.
Oshoala reportedly picked up a knock during the team’s previous game against Canada, raising concerns about her availability for the crucial encounter.
According to a reliable camp source, Oshoala will be assessed during the team’s final training session on Wednesday to determine the extent of her injury and if she can recover in time for the match against Australia.
The 28-year-old’s potential absence leaves head coach Randy Waldrum with some decisions to make in terms of team selection.
With the game fast approaching, the coaching staff is closely monitoring Oshoala’s injury situation to ascertain if she can shake off the knock and be fit for the important fixture.
As one of Nigeria’s key attacking players, her potential absence could be felt during the match against Australia.
However, Waldrum has a number of good options at his disposal, including tthe likes Desire Oparanozie, Jennifer Echegini, Monday Gift, and Uchenna Kanu.
The Super Falcons are determined to put on a strong performance in the Women’s World Cup, and a win against Australia is crucial to their progression in the tournament.
