in a short video chat published on the Super Falcons Twitter handle, Oshoala said: “I think the most important thing is to make sure we get the ticket to the World Cup, that’s the primary aim to qualify for the World Cup.

“And then to possibly win the tournament. It’s one of the goals we have going into this tournament as a team.

On her personal goal heading to the WAFCON: “And personally as an individual I just want to better than the last tournament.”

Oshoala emerged as the top scorer in the Spanish women’s league last season and also helped Barcelona claim the treble.
