Nigeria’s Uchenna Grace Kanu – who bagged a hat trick against Burkina Faso – is confident of making the squad for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

After a perfect performance in front of goal and an MVP award to boot, Uchenna Grace Kanu is optimistic of making it to France next month.

“I am sure I’m going to work hard to make the team that is going to the World Cup. But I can’t assure you that because, the coach has the final say.

“But for me, I’m going to give all my best and make that happen for myself,” she told NBSportslive after her side’s emphatic victory over Burkina Faso.

Eleven-time champions and Group B favourites, Nigeria will square off against Niger in their second group game at the Parc de Sports on Saturday, May 11.
