Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrum is optimistic of the return of Asisat Oshoala’s to action in subsequent matches of the Women Africa Cup of Nations.

The Barcelona forward was substituted in the 2-1 defeat to South Africa due to precautionary measures on Monday.

The opening goal arrived on the hour mark as Cesane did well to beat her marker before picking out Seoposenwe, who took one touch before slotting home.

The lead was doubled a couple minutes later as Kgatlana turned provider to play in Hildah Magaia who sent a first-time finish into the far corner.

Rasheedat Ajibade reduced the deficit for the Nigerians in added time with a close-range strike into the bottom corner, but it proved to be a consolation as Banyana secured maximum points.

Speaking on the state of Oshoala’s health, Waldrum said: “I think she will be fine, the doctors will check her and I am hopeful for a good update.”

Nigeria will now turn their attention to Thursday’s clash against Botswana.
