The Nigerian was in fine form as her Swedish side secured their third successive win on Wednesday.

Ngozi Okobi believes more can be expected from her after being named the Player of the Match in Eskilstuna United's 3-0 win over Kungsbacka on Wednesday.

The Nigeria international was a late substitute in each of Eskistuna's opening seven top-flight games this season. 

However, the 25-year-old started in her side's three consecutive wins, providing two assists since her return from the Women's World Cup in France.

The midfielder, who was named on the Damallsvenskan Team of the Week, is glad to regain her regular place and also eager to shine in their subsequent matches. 

"Making the league team of the week and Player of the Match means a lot to me," Okobi told Goal.

"It also proved that I deserve more playing time in this team also made me believe that no matter what, I have potentials in me that will never be hidden.
