Asisat Oshoala entered the history books as the first Super Falcons player to score in three consecutive FIFA Women’s World Cups after she netted in the side’s 3-2 victory against Australia on Thursday.
The 28-year-old was a doubt for the game after picking a knock in the team’s 0-0 draw against Canada last week.
Oshoala took the place of Uchenna Kanu on 64 minutes.
The Barcelona Femeni forward profited from a sloppy defending from the co-hosts to score the Super Falcons third goal of the thrilling encounter.
Oshoala scored her first World Cup goal for the Super Falcons in the 3-3 draw against Sweden at the 2015 edition hosted by Canada.
The 28-year-old was also on target four years ago in the 2-0 draw against South Korea.
