Ajibade's Solitary Goal Lifts Avaldsnes to Victory


Super Falcons forward, Rasheedat Ajibade's goal was crucial for her Norwegian side as it propelled Avaldsnes to a slim 1-0 win over Arna-Bjornar on Saturday, July 18, 2020.


The former FC Robo Queens player scored the all-important goal for Avaldsnes in the 15th minute to lift her club level on points with the league leaders.


Rasheedat's goal in the course of the matchday three fixture took her goal tally to two in three games this season. She scored her first goal during Avaldsnes' matchday one victory over Lyn on Saturday, July 4, 2020. 

Rasheedat played for the full duration of the match.


With seven points from three league games, Avaldsnes are level on points with league leaders, LSK Kvinner, and second with inferior goal difference after LSK Kvinner's 1-5 away win over Roea on Friday. 

Rasheedat Busayo Ajibade joined Avaldsnes from Lagos based Nigeria Women Football League, NWFL Premiership side, FC Robo Queens in 2018 after scoring eight goals in the Nigerian league in 2017 to save FC Robo from relegation. 

She has also featured for Nigeria at all levels be it U-17, U-20, and senior level.
