Oshoala “Sad, Pained” To Miss Super Falcons Vs France Friendly

By Johnny Edward:

Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala has expressed her disappointment at missing out on the team’s international friendly against France on Friday in Le Mans, reports Completesportnigeria.com.

Oshoala was left out of the squad of 18 players to face France in the Falcons first game in over 15 months.

The Super Falcons last played on December 3, 2016, in the final of the African Women’s Cup of Nations against hosts Cameroon.

“I totally understand and appreciate the concern of our dear supporters. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control, I won’t be part of the team to participate in the friendly against France. Sad and pained but would be giving my full support to the team. #SuperFalcons,” Oshoala tweeted on Thursday.

She however refuted claims she was injured when a fan asked if she was.

“No sir,” she responded.

The Dalian Quanjian star is the reigning African Women’s Player of the Year.


  • Let see if they can win without her. Maybe, she’s the Mikel Obi of the Super Falcons

    Why was she left out of the list of invited players for the friendly match with France. Can The NFF tell us please?
