Falconets star, Asisat Oshoala has expressed regrets at her failure to win the trophy for Nigeria following the 0-1 loss to Germany in the final of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup on Sunday.

Oshoala, who was picked as the Best Player of the tournament and emerged the highest goal scorer with seven goals, said she is unhappy despite her remarkable personal achievement in Canada, Goal reports.

The Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt forward said her side was not destined to win the final after putting up an impressive display against the organised Germans.

“Everybody played their hearts out, our performance was great. I am very impressed. There was cohesion among us but we played [against] one of the best teams, missed our chances to score. It wasn’t our day,” Oshoala told Goal.

“I made a promise to do well and show myself to the world. I achieved that and I want to thank my mates for helping me fulfil my dreams, but missing out on the trophy is not what I wanted for my country,” she concluded.
