Barcelona Femeni of Spain attacker, Asisat Oshoala is still celebrating winning three trophies this season with the club, and put it all down to the grace of God in her life, megasportsarena.com reports.
While basking in the euphoria of earlier victories in the UEFA Women’s Champions League and Spanish Women’s League, the four-time African Women’s Footballer of The Year is also relishing her tam’s latest conquest of the Spanish Copa de la Reina.
The third layer of celebrations comes for her following a 4-2 victory against Levante, but the former FC Robo Queens of Lagos, Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt, Liverpool Ladies and Arsenal Women of England as well as Dalian Quanjian of China star said she hopes to win more trophies with The Catalans.
Two years after becoming the first African player to appear and score in the WUCL final, Oshoala became the first from the continent to win the prestigious trophy and emerge as the land’s most decorated female footballer ever in history.
He brushed aside the fact that she could only feature as a second-half substitute in her side’s 4-0 to win over Chelsea Ladies of England to win the WUCL title in the Swedish city of Gothenburg, even as the 26-year-old lass, fondly called ‘Super Zee,’ had a last-gasp goal ruled out for offside.
Oshoala submitted by acknowledging that Barca’s success this season has made her eager to win more silverware and further told BBC Sport: “Once is a nice achievement, but it has given me and my teammates a taste of success and we want more of that.
“You can never limit yourself when you go out there to play professionally, especially outside of the continent because you carry more than your nation on your shoulder.
“To achieve this with Barcelona has shown that we can win a major trophy as a team and as part of this great club, the desire is keep raising the African flag by making more history.”
“The hope is for whatever I do to open doors for other Africans because we have talented players in Africa. It’s very important to continue to not only represent my country well but the beautiful continent of Africa very well, too.”
