Super Eagles and Barcelona Fermine striker, Asisat Oshola, has been ranked as Africa’s top women footballer in Europe.
According to ESPN, the Nigerian and South African Thembi Kgatlana, were the two African attackers in Spain that head and shoulders above the rest in December.
But Oshoala was credited to have worked her way back to the top, scoring in almost all the games for Barcelona.
According to the site, “Oshoala began the month by coming off the bench and scoring in a 9-0 Primera División Femenina rout of Santa Teresa. In the UEFA Women’s Champions League round of 32 first leg, she started and scored in a 4-1 away win over PSV.
“Three days later, Barcelona visited Valencia in the league and Oshoala was the star of the show. She played the full 90 minutes, scoring three times in a 7-0 drubbing.
“Oshoala came off the bench for Caroline Hansen in the 72nd minute of the return leg against PSV, another 4-1 win. She replaced the same player in the 46th minute of Barcelona’s next league match, against Sevilla, scoring in a 6-0 triumph.
“Back in the starting lineup to finish the year off, the Super Falcons star scored twice in a 6-1 drubbing of Deportivo de La Coruña.”
