He was full of praise for the lass when he described her as “a player full of intelligence.” In a chat with after the semi final duel against Korea, Devdebo said,  “if you want to accomplish great things, it is important to have intelligence in your team and a player who can make the difference like Asisat (Oshoala) did today.”

The coach also led bare his tactical approach to the game, “a goal scored early against any team gives our team confidence and it breaks that of our opponents. We had already played against Korea Republic and I was sure that Korea DPR were not better than them, so I was confident we would win.

Now we are in the final and, whoever our opponents will be, we are not afraid of them. I had said to my girls before the tournament that the World Cup really starts at the quarter-finals. Since that stage, my team have improved.”
