7 Goals In 5 Games For Barcelona: Oshoala Must Replicate This Form For Nigeria

Super Falcons captain, Asisat Oshoala has been in fine form for FC Barcelona this season. On Saturday, the former Arsenal forward scored in her fourth consecutive game for Barcelona Feminine. Although she has been in fine form this season for Barcelona, she has not replicated that form for the Falcons in recent games

Asisat Oshoala's goal on Saturday is her 7th goal in five games this season. The Super Falcons captain played two games at the Aisha Buhari Cup in Lagos but she failed to score in both games

She has not scored for the Super Falcons in her last five games for the team. Apart from the two assists against Mali, the Barcelona forward did nothing spectacular at the tournament and her partnership with Dijon forward, Desire Oparanozie did not click


She is Randy Waldrum's most trusted striker in the Super Falcons but her performance for the team in recent games leaves questions unanswered. Since she returned to Barcelona after the tournament in Lagos, she has scored in every game she has played for Barcelona

The Super Falcons have a difficult African Women's Cup of Nations qualifier against Mali and the team needs its strikers to be in their best goal scoring form in order to cross the hurdle


As the captain of the team, her performance for the team will spur other strikers in the team to raise their game. She must also be business-minded when playing for the team, as it is not a time to show off. The Barcelona striker got a chance to score against Mali when she came face-to-face with the goalkeeper but she chose to round the goalkeeper and executed the skill poorly. 

In subsequent games for the Falcons, the coaches and fans expect her to bring her form from Barcelona to the team and to score goals for the team, as they go in search of a spot in the 2022 African Women's Cup of Nations and qualifier to the World Cup
