Barcelona Femenino of Spain attacker, Asisat Oshoala has set her sight on winning three more trophies with her team, even after helping them clinch the Spanish Super Cup last weekend, with a 10-1 spanking of Real Sociedad, megasportsarena.com gathered.
The victory also saw 25-year-old Oshoala win her first major trophy in Spain, but the Nigerian female national team, Super Falcons’ captain, who mid-last year also helped Barca win the 2019 Copa Catalunya with a 4-0 win over Espanyol in the final, admitted she is hungry for more glory with her club, even as she aims to keep banging goals that will fetch them silverware this year.
After snatching a brace of goals for the Catalans on Sunday, as Barca thrashed Sociedad to clinch the maiden Spanish Women’s Super Cup in Salamanca, ‘Super Zee’ confessed that she is very desirous of winning the Iberdola tile, Spanish Cup and UEFA Women’s Champions League.
Her team remain unbeaten atop the Primera División table, as they seek their first league title in five years and they face Liga rivals Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, in which her team fell short at the last lap last season, as she scored a late consolation in their 4-1 loss to Olympique Lyon in the final.
This time out, Oshoala says she is staying fully focused and keeping her feet firmly placed on the ground with the team she joined initially on loan midway through last season, January 2019 to be precise, from Dalian Quanjian of China, before signing a permanent deal five months later.
Before her massive lift in career at Barca, Oshoala moved to Quanjian in the Far East in February 2017 from Arsenal Ladies of England, with whom she won the English Women’s FA Cup in May 2016, and then finished as the Chinese Women’s Super League top scorer in 2017 with 12 goals.
There was also the Chine title to the bargain for her club in the same year for Oshoala, who began her European career at Liverpool Ladies of England, and is now aiming at more trophies at her current base, where she helped inspire the squad to claim the first ever four-team Spanish Super Cup women’s title, with two wonderful goals coming off her boots.
After playing the full duration of Saturday’s game, Oshoala, who has now scored 19 goals in 22 matches in all competitions this season, celebrated her first major title since her debut for The Catalans, and ‘Super Zee’ is now aiming higher, as she wants to help her side also clinch this year’s Spanish Women’s Cup away to Sporting Huelva on Tuesday.
Oshoala gleefully told BBC Sport: “To add the Super Cup to last year’s Copa Catalunya was a great experience. But, my professional priority is to keep doing well and winning, so I can’t take my eyes off the targets.
“We still have the league, UEFA Women’s Champions League and the Spanish Cup to contest this season as a team. Individual ambition is same as a collective one for the team this season. We do not have the satisfaction yet because we’re challenging for success in all competitions, so we need to keep going.”
