Asisat Oshoala win Champions League

Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala became the first Nigerian and African female player to win the UEFA Women’s Champions League after helping Barcelona in the final against Chelsea on Sunday, May 16.

The 26-year-old Asisat Oshoala came into the game in the 71st minute as Barcelona defeated Chelsea in the 2020/21 final.

Lluis Cortes’ women took the lead in the first minute at Gamla Ullevi after Melanie Leupolz turned the ball into her own net.

Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati, and Caroline Graham Hansen also fired past goalkeeper, Ann-Katrin Berger to end the dreams of Chelsea manager Emma Hayes.

Barcelona wanted more goals then introduced Oshoala for Spanish midfielder Jennifer Hermoso in the 71st minute. Oshoala scored the fifth goal in the final stages of the game, but it was ruled offside.

Before the game in Gothenburg, the four-time African Women’s Player of the Year claimed that Barca had learned from their final defeat to Lyon in 2019.

“Now, we have the experience of how European football is and also how a top game like this is played,” she told the media.

“I think we’re going to be better with our tactics this year, how we go out and play and everything.

“For us, it was good. We played in the final 2019, we lost and then we picked up corrections from there.

“Come May 16, against Chelsea, I don’t think we’re going to make the same mistakes again, because we already learned from the past. We are a better team now than we were two years ago.”.

In other news, Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala looks to be finding it hard to return home due to the lockdown in Spain, where she plays for Barcelona Femení.

The Barcelona striker indicated that she would like to return home to spend time with her family. This is coming as a result of the cancellation of the Spanish Primera Iberdrola earlier this month due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The four-time African Women’s Footballer of the Year winner, who observed the Ramadan fast in Spain, revealed she wants to return home to join her family. (Continue reading)
