Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum has confirmed Asisat Oshoala is “fit and ready” to face England Lionesses in Monday’s Round of 16 clash.
Oshoala was struggling for fitness coming into the World Cup after picking up a knock playing for Barcelona.
The forward has not played 90 minutes at the tournament, but she is fully fit to face England on Monday.
The Lionesses are taking on Nigeria in the last 16 in Brisbane and they will now have to find a way to stop one of the most dangerous attacks in world football.
“She’s fit and ready to go,” said Waldrum. “She’s ready to perform whatever we ask of her.
“She’s key, you saw her coming off the bench against Australia and saw how important she was.
“She’s a special striker with strength and speed and intelligence in her runs and movements, she’s a big piece of what we do and it’s good to have her fit.”
