Super Falcons’ forward, Asisat Oshoala has stated categorically that she will not be under any form of pressure when the World Cup gets underway in Canada next month.
The reigning African Female Footballer of the Year said whatever individual award she got last year at the Under-20 World Cup will not put her under any pressure to perform.
“The first stage of the Olympics qualifier is gone and I think we have to look forward to the next competition, which is the senior World Cup. We have few weeks to prepare and focus on the task at hand.
“I’m not under any pressure because that was a junior competition and this is a senior competition.
Definitely, it is a different ball game but what I will say is that I will go to Canada again and give my best and prove that I am a good player and that what happened in 2014 was not a fluke. I have to make sure I give the fans a lot of reason to smile in Nigeria,” said the Liverpool Ladies striker.
“Winning the MVP and highest goals scorer award at the forthcoming World Cup are secondary achievements but the primary aim is to go there and get the trophy. That is the primary thing, so whatever comes after that is the secondary achievement,” she added.
