Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala, has become the first Nigerian as well as the first African to win the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The 26-year-old came off the bench in the 71st minute as they defeated Chelsea 4-0 in the final on Sunday.

Lluis Cortes’ women had taken a first-minute lead after Melanie Leupolz diverted the ball into her own net.

Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati and Caroline Graham Hansen also added more goals in the first half.

Oshoala added a fifth goal in the final minutes, but her effort was ruled out for offside.

Barca had lost the 2019 final to Lyon.
