Asisat Oshoala has tasked her Super Falcons teammates to put behind them their uninspiring AWCON semii-final display against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa to power their African Women's Cup of Nations title dream, reports Completesportsnigeria
The reigning Champions were far from their best in Tuesday's nervy 1-0 semi-final win which earned them their tenth appearance in the final of the competition.
And Oshoala who is the tournament top scorer with five goals, insists they can beat the Lionesses of Cameroon again just like they did two years ago.
Goals from Desire Oparanoize and Asisat Oshoala earned the Super Falcons a 2-0 win over Cameroun in the final of the last edition in Nambia.
The victory was the Super Falcons ninth triumph of the competition.
"We have a goal which is to win the title," an inspired Oshoala told Completesportsnigeria.com
"We haven’t won any silverware since 2014, so there’s no getting away from the fact that we have to get it right with another AWCON triumph."
"There’s always an opportunity to redeem yourself, and what better way to do it than against Cameroun – one of the top teams in Africa."
