Joining FC Barcelona Women on loan from China is probably the best decision Asisat Oshoala has made in her club career. The Nigerian scored a goal in the UEFA Women’s Champions League final on Saturday, becoming the first African ever to score in the final of the competition.

The 24-year-old came on in the 87th minute of the game, when her team was suffering a 4-0 loss to Lyon. She put a smile on the faces of the fans by scoring just two minutes after entering the pitch, delivering the only goal for her team.

Although her efforts weren’t enough to win her side the trophy, that goal made her the first Barcelona player to score in the Women’s Champions League final. Even without that goal, she had already made history as the first Nigerian to play in the final.

We look forward to seeing her kick ass alongside other Super Falcons at the upcoming Women’s World Cup in France.
