Nigeria striker, Asisat Oshoala has admitted that the first goal in their 2-0 win over Korea on Wednesday gave them more confidence.
Oshoala failed to find the back of the net last Saturday as the Super Falcons were hammered 3-0 by Norway in their opening game of the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
However, the 24-year-old added the second in Grenoble as the African champions claimed maximum points.
“We had more confidence when we got the first goal.
“And we tried to tell ourselves that we needed to give more because one goal was not enough and then, I got the second goal.
“At first, I think we were a little bit scared of losing and going out. But after a while, we just decided to go for it.
“I always say that I’m never under pressure – I just go on the pitch and do my job. It’s an 11-player game and I just look to enjoy the game, have fun and do the right thing for my team.
“The group is wide open now. We just have to concentrate now on making sure we get the points we need against France,” Oshoala told reporters afterwards.
Nigeria are third in the Group A with three points from two games and will hope to claim their spot in the next round when they face Les Bleus.
