Courtney Dike looking to make World Cup squad

America-based goals machine Courtney Dike, who scored a hat trick for Nigeria in a recent friendly match against UMF Selfoss of Iceland, has said she is training and working hard to be involved in Nigeria's world cup campaign in June.

Having missed out on a place in Nigeria's squad for the 2018 Afcon and friendly tournaments (in China and Cyprus earlier in the year), Dike returned with a bang to score 3 goals as the Super Falcons ran away 6:1 winners against the Icelandic club side in last FIFA friendly window.

Speaking on her intentions of making Nigeria's world cup squad, the 24 year old said on "I've continued to play for Oklahoma City FC and also train with the men's team of the youth club that I practice with.

I do personal training and my University coach has created a fitness packet for me to work on; I am maintaining my fitness and keeping my eyes on the goal for the World Cup and doing everything with the summer in mind."
