Injured Nigerian striker returns for Barcelona

Injured Nigerian striker, Asisat Oshoala is back for the Barcelona Women’s team after suffering an injury setback during the earlier Champions League clash against Manchester Ladies’ female team.

Oshoala gave the Barcelona Femini side a huge boost as she showed up in the semi-final first leg tie against Paris Saint Germain on Sunday.

She featured in the final 26 minutes of the encounter after she replaced teammate and scorer Hermoso.

The clash with the French side ended 1-1.

On Monday, Oshoala in her characteristic humorous style announced her return with a hilarious post.

She wrote: Iya yin ti de pada oo...... Mama is back, the GOAT is here. No sleep for the wicked ....NIGHTMARE

Despite Sunday’s draw, Oshoala and her teammates hold a slim first-leg advantage, heading into the second leg with an away goal in the bag.

With her return, the Nigerian striker will hope to have attained full fitness for the crucial semi-final reserve fixture on May 5.

Before the PSG tie, Oshoala could add to her 15 league goals tally against Madrid on April 28.
