Recently crowned African female footballer of the year, Asisat Oshoala, has stressed the need for the Super Falcons to play more friendly games.

The team has not played together since their exploits in the African Women’s Cup of Nations tournament.

The Falcons are scheduled to play France on April 4 in Paris, but Oshoala maintains that “it is not enough”.

“It’s a good one, a big step for us and good news for women’s football in Nigeria generally but it’s not enough,” Oshoala told BBC Sport.

“It’s not about the France game alone, we need more games like this and we don’t have to plead before we get games.”

The Super Falcons striker also revealed part of her discussions with NFF president, Amaju Pinnick centered around the coach who will lead the female national team.

“I’ve had an honest conversation with the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) about this,” said the 23-year-old attacker.

“He’s been very positive and in a couple of weeks we will definitely have someone to lead the team.

Oshoala, currently plays for Dalian Quanjian FC in the Chinese super league.
