The thirty-one-year-old has started every game for the Super Falcons at the FIFA Women’s World Cup so far and will be looking to repel every England attack on Monday, at the Brisbane Stadium.
Speaking to Victor Modo about England’s route against China and ahead of the game against the Lionesses, Ohale said;
“We also defeated Australia to get to the round of sixteen, and China is China, not Nigeria. England is a very good side, and they have quality players, no doubt.”
Speaking of the quality in the team’s side, she said;
“We also have quality players as well to match up with them as well. It’s going to be a good game, and it’s going to be a tough game, but I think whoever wants it the most will get away with it.”
