The Arsenal Ladies forward who was named in the CAF's women team of the season also revealed that the Super Falcons' protest over their unpaid allowances and bonuses in Abuja was to see the game grow well in Nigeria.


"The female league is not helping matters at all, not the Falcons. We need a proper developmental plan to see women's football grow. In my opinion we are not getting it," Oshoala stated..


"We have the League Management Committee supporting the men's league which is very good and we need something like that for the women's league in Nigeria.


"We need a proper structure to help women's football grow."


While appreciating the efforts of the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, the Arsenal Ladies forward expressed her optimism that the team's performance will be better at the next  Women's Afrihca Cup of Nations in Ghana.


"We appreciate all what you have been doing for the team regardless of what we've heard about you," Oshoala remarked.


"We are not fighting for ourselves because of money, lbut for the future of women's football in Nigeria."
