“Yeah, I guess it has been a break. I haven’t been able to go to the camp, like I said, it’s more of a personal decision while I take care of my body. Ultimately, I want to be with the team. It’s a privilege, and I want to be in the best physical condition to be able to go and compete in important games,” the former Leicester defender told Nigeria Football.

She admitted she has been using the time off to work on herself so she can perform optimally for the Super Falcons, adding that she’s still a big supporter of the team.

“Right now, I have complete trust and faith in the team. I’ll be watching the game while I’m here, but, I want to get to a point where I can compete maximally and provide as much as I can to the team in the best condition. So, yeah, I expect to be, I don’t know when, but hopefully as soon as possible,” she added.

The Super Falcons will be without their first choice left-back as they face Cape Verde tomorrow evening.
