Falconets star Asisat Oshoala has declared that the lingering administrative crisis of the Niger Football Federation would have no negative effect on her team’s performance in Canada.

Asisat who starred at the last U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan, in an exclusive chat with SavidNews.com said she and her teammates are fully prepared and ready to challenge any team despite the odds.

“We are very ready to play our best at World Cup and also come out victorious. I’ve been at the tournament before, it’s no new challenge for me – just like a normal competition, I’m sure my experience will count for me and the team.

“Not having any tour of Europe is nothing and won’t affect us in anyway. Our lessons from the friendly matches with Ghana is good enough for us,” she told SavidNews.

The 19-year-old, said the friendly atmosphere and understanding within the players and the technical crew will bring many positives for the team in Canada.

“The team is psychologically, mentally and physically prepared for the tournament. We don’t have any problem, we love each other, and the coaches are trying to ensure good understanding without.

“We are not distracted at all by (NFF Crisis). We have no business with the current administrative issues, as players, we job is to play well on the pitch and having nothing to do with the office,” Oshoala explained.

The River Angels star has scored a total of four goals for the Nigeria representatives during the qualifiers and friendly despite her limited involvement in the team’s preparatory campaign due to engagement with the Super Falcons.

Peter Dedevbo’s ladies will begin their campaign at the women international football competition against Mexico on Thursday morning by 12am at the Moncton Stadium in Canada.
