The five times Africa Women Player of the Year winner is set to miss Nigeria’s friendly against 2011 World Champions, Japan.

Asisat Oshoala did not join the Super Falcons before the deadline set by coach Randy Waldrum, with no reason was given for her absence.

However, she was spotted training with Barcelona on Wednesday afternoon – which confirms her non-participation in the fixture billed for the Noevir Stadium in Kobe.

She is not included among the latest arrivals in the Super Falcons camp.
