Oshoala Seeks Ronaldo Inspiration to Beat USA

Oshoala Seeks Ronaldo Inspiration to Beat USA

Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala has urged her fellow strikers in the Nigeria's senior women national team to emulate Real Madrid's strike force of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in order to defeat the USA.

The Falcons need an outright victory against the USA to stand a chance of qualifying for the round of 16 at the ongoing FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada.

After holding Sweden to a thrilling 3-3 draw in their opening game at the World Cup, the Falcons lost 2-0 to Australia in their next game.
Oshoala who has scored a goal so far in the tournament, told FIFA.com that they will go far in Canada if they can effectively copy the trio.

“I want us to play like Real Madrid’s forwards. They’re very, very good, Benzema, Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. 

“We can be similar to them and I’d like us to play just like them as much as possible. As a front three, we can be very dangerous and if we try to be like them, we’ll go very far in this tournament!" 

Reacting to the Falcons loss to Australia, Oshoala attributed it to luck.

“I would say Sweden actually made it very hard for us. Australia I think were an easier opponent. We were unlucky not to get the goals we needed. But it doesn’t matter, we have to be better, no matter what.”

    This can only work if the coach uses the right players. He should not be stingy with substitutions. Courtney Dike should start the match against USA alongside Oshoala

    naija problem would be only be solved when there is exit of tribalism/ religious difference Oshoala. when Nff or the Govt could put a stop of selecting players through qouta system or giving coaches appointment through religious/ tribal ground. Mr Okon is a coach of a female football club there in naija also awarded the coach of national female team because of his religious background knowing very well he couldnt be able to run both jobs effectively. sorry for mother land naija same goes to the current u 20
