Oshoala wins Champions League title with Barcelona


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.
