FIFA has congratulated Super Falcons striker and captain Asisat Oshoala for being the highest scorer in the Primera Iberdrola (Spanish women’s first division) this season.
Despite a three-month injury layoff, Oshoala finished the season with 20 goals and three assists in 19 games.
Before winning the honor, she faced stiff competition.
Real Madrid’s Geyse Ferreira scored 20 goals in 27 appearances and added one assist, compared to Oshoala’s 19 appearances and one assist.
FIFA praised Oshoala’s play for Barcelona this season in response to her top scorer honor.
“20 goals and a perfect club season.
Barcelona Femeni (Barcelona’s women’s team) won the 2021/2022 Primera Iberdrola with a perfect record of 30 wins from 30 matches, scoring 159 goals and conceding 11 in the process.
Barcelona Femeni is aiming to win the treble like the previous season, as they are in the final of the Women’s Champions League – to clash with Lyon at the Juventus Stadium in Turin on May 21.
Meanwhile, Oshoala is among 32 players invited by Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum, for a two-week camp in Morocco ahead of this year’s CAF Women’s Cup of Nations.
