Nigeria’s women football legend, Perpetua Nkwocha, has said that the new poster girl of Nigeria football, Asisat Oshoala has what it takes to be the best woman footballer in the world if she remains focused and disciplined.

Nkwocha, who is with the Super Falcons in Toronto in preparation for her fourth World Cup finals, said Asisat is a young talent with a great future, noting that she has the talent to  achieve a lot more with a bit of hard work and composure.

“Seeing Asisat play reminds me of my hey days. She has shown that she can do better than me by becoming Africa’s Best Woman Footballer at just 20 years of age and the world’s best young footballer. Now she has been named BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year. She is heading in the right direction and I see her being among the best in the world in no distant time.

“I believe she is an improved version of me and I see her getting better and picking up personal and club awards along the line, but she must work hard. I saw her play in Namibia at AWC and I must confess that I marveled at her skills, pace and confidence with the ball . I will continue to pray for her so that she could last and do better in the game than I did,” said Nkwocha who has been on the scene for 15 years.
