The Super Falcons will again miss the services of top star Asisat Oshoala for an all-important Rio 2016 Olympic qualifier against Equatorial Guinea due to injury, according to a report on the BBC.
The reigning African women’s player of the year missed the first leg which ended 1-1 in Abuja due to the same injury, and she won’t recover by the time the return leg will be played on August 2.
The injury also sidelined her from Thursday’s league game for Liverpool against Everton and she will be out “for weeks”, the club manager Matt Murray said.
Oshoala was injured last Saturday as she helped ‘The Reds’ beat Notts County 2-0.
“It’s the spine of your team – your central midfielder, your centre-back and your centre-forward – but it’s one of those things,” Beard told the BBC.
“They’re important players to us but it’s going to give maybe one or two of the younger players an opportunity.
“We’ll do as much as we can, while we’re still involved in everything mathematically, to finish as high as we can.”
