Captain Asisat Oshoala has said she was proud of the Super Falcons after they fought back to draw 3-3 with Portugal in continuation of the Summer Series in Texas, USA.
“I am proud of everyone (in Super Falcons),” said Oshoala in a dressing room address after the comeback against Portugal.
“We were two goals down and then 3-2 in the 88th minute and we did it.
“I want to say this is just the beginning because we have so much in this team, we don’t even know what we have, people out there kept cheering us when we had the ball because we kept on pushing.
“That’s the spirit!”
Coach Randy Waldrum also congratulated the team for the hard-fought draw.
“We are always in the game till the last whistle,” he said.
The African champions will play their final game in the Summer Series Wednesday against world champions and hosts USA, who thrashed Jamaica 4-0 in their second game of the invitational tourney.
