Oshoala Thrilled To Hit Target In Barcelona Ladies Win Over Real Sociedad

Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala is happy to get back on the goal trail for Barcelona Ladies in Tuesday’s 4-1 against Real Sociedad in their Liga Iberdrola clash at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, Completesports.com reports.

Oshoala who recently returned from international duty for Nigeria scored the opening goal for Barcelona Ladies in the 18th minute of the encounter.

It was Oshoala‘s fourth goal in four appearances for Barcelona Ladies since her arrival on loan from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian in January.

Nahikari Garcia equalised for the visitors in the 27th minute to silence the home fans.

The hosts regained the lead six minutes later courtesy of a fine effort by Aintana Bonmati.

Matra Torrejon got the third goal for Barcelona Ladies in the 35th minute as the hosts exerted their authority on the game.

Substitute Andressa Alves scored the fourth goal 14 minutes from time.

“Good fight from the team last night, happy to be on the score sheet too @FCBfemeni 🔴🔵🔴🔵,” the former Arsenal Ladies star tweeted.

Barcelona Ladies have kept pressure on leaders Atletico Madrid Ladies following the win as only three points separate both sides in the table.

  • Oshoala playing in one of the best leagues in the world and scoring consistently is really heartwarming stuff ahead of the women’s World Cup.

    I was reading an article on brillafm.com recently where Oshoala was quoted as saying: “Joining Barcelona is a good one for me and for my country.

    We are optimistic as we get prepared. I already told my team-mates that no-one that’s qualified for the World Cup is a pushover.

    We’re among the champions of our own continents. It’s champions against champions. The group is open but it’s very high quality.” End of quote.

    I agree with Asisat – who has scored the most goals for Nigeria since Dennerby took over – that going to the World Cup with a hot goal scoring form will be good for Nigeria and will spell danger for our opponents (Norway, North Korea and France).

    Something tells me that the Super Falcons will have a much improved performance at this world cup compared to 4 years ago.

    • *South Korea* – North Korea ke? That is for Donald Trump to sort out.
