Oluehi blames the defeat against Nigeria and is looking forward to the game against Portugal Portugal
Before the game against the Europeans, the goalkeeper has no doubt that the Super Falcons can recover from their loss to the Reggae Girlz
Tochukwu Oluehi have announced that Nigeria are looking to recover from their loss to Jamaica in the Portugal game.
The ladies at Randy Waldrum started their Summer Series campaign on a losing note, bowing 0-1 to Jamaica, Texas.
Deneisha Blackwood’s goal in the second half ended the encounter as the African Queens had to pay for their lackluster performance.
This was the first time that Nigeria lost a game to Germany in the round of 16 since the FIFA Women’s World Cup was eliminated in 2019.
The 34-year-old saved a penalty in the first half and made some impressive saves to keep the result in order.
As the Super Falcons prepare for the A Seleccao das Quinas on Monday morning, Oluehi is optimistic about their team’s chances of victory.
“I wanted to blame myself, but I don’t know what to say. If a goalkeeper tries his best, just one stupid goal would come and mess everything up, ”she said on the Super Falcons Instagram handle.
“I wasn’t happy with the goal [we conceded] But I’ve tried, I’ve tried my best
“We saw the game [against Jamaica]. We would go home and correct our mistakes, catch up and make sure we win our second game against Portugal. “
In the absence of Barcelona star Asisat Oshoala, Levante star Francisca Ordega wore the captain’s armband.
Swiss defender Onyinyechi Zogg, Rivers Angels winger Vivian Ikechukwu, Finnish-born striker Roosa Ariyo and Sunshine FC defender Oluwatosin Dimehin also made their international debut for Nigeria.
Drawing on their defenders’ performance against the ladies of Hue Menzies, Oluehi stated that they would get better over time.
“Well, at the moment I would reach it with 50 percent. They did well even though they were new to the team. In time they would get there, ”she added.
After the game against Portugal on Monday, they will face hosts USA in the final of the four-nation competition on June 17 at the Q2 stadium.
With the Awcon 2022 qualifying campaign starting in October, these games will be a useful exercise in determining who deserves another intake against Ghana.
