Nigeria's women's football captain Asisat Oshoala has described the Super Falcons' early exit from the 2020 Olympic Games as "heart-breaking".

The African champions were knocked out on the away goals rule after drawing 1-1 with Ivory Coast in Lagos on Monday.

"It's very disappointing and a real heartbreak for us," said Oshoala.

"Obviously, it's what I was looking forward to. I've never played at the Olympics and it's important for us to participate in it as a team."

"I actually thought this would be it - sadly it wasn't meant to be," she told BBC Sport.
