The Super Falcons have landed in Grenoble, where they will take on former champions Germany in a round of 16 tie of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Saturday, Sportsandstudy.org reports.
The fitness update ahead of the meeting at the Stade des Alpes which will be pleasing to the ears of Super Falcons fans is that Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala is ‘definitely fit’ to start against the Germans.
The former Arsenal and Liverpool striker had to play through the pain barrier in the final group match vs France before she was substituted in the 85th minute.
On Wednesday, Oshoala had a gym session with the rest of her teammates but was excused from the training session on grass, but the following day she participated in full training.
With Ngozi Ebere (red card) and Rita Chikwelu (accumulated bookings) suspended for tomorrow’s game, manager Thomas Dennerby will be forced to make at least two changes to the starting line-up.
Evelyn Nwabuoku could replace Ohale Osinachi in central defence while the Vaxjo DFF star could take up the left-back role.
