Oshoala reactions after winning UEFA Women’s Champions League for the first time

Asisat Oshoala reactions after winning UEFA Women’s Champions League for the first time with Barcelona 4-0 win over Chelsea in the final at Gamla Ullevi Stadium on Sunday night.

The 26-year-old Nigeria international was named on Barcelona’s bench after recovering from a foot injury.

Barcelona women had taken a first-minute lead at the Gamla Ullevi after Melanie Leupolz turned the ball into her own net before Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati and Caroline Graham Hansen also fired past goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger in the first half to end the ambitions for Chelsea.

Oshoala was introduced for Spanish midfielder Jennifer Hermoso in the 71st minute as Barcelona craved more goals.

Super Falcons skipper makes it five in the closing stages of the encounter, although four-time Africa Women Player of the Year effort was chalked off for her being in an offside position.

Oshoala has become the first African player to win the Women's Champions League but the former Arsenal and Liverpool took to her social media handle to celebrate the triumph in Gothenburg.




Before Sunday’s outing, Oshoala was the only player to have scored for Barcelona in a Champions League Final but Super Falcons striker scored four goals on the road to lift the tournament.
