Nigeria‘s campaign at the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France may have ended in the round of 16, but the team’s exploits are still being appreciated. With the competition over, FIFA has released the shortlist for the ‘Goal of the Tournament‘, and Asisat Oshoala made the cut.
Oshoala was shortlisted for her stunning goal, which contributed to the Super Falcons’ 2-0 win over South Korea — making Nigeria the first African country to win their second group game in the history of the competition.
The 24-year-old scored the goal after receiving a long pass in the 75th minute. She had dribbled past a defender and the goalkeeper, slipping the ball into the net from a really tight angle. She made the shortlist alongside nine other nominees.
Given that Nigeria couldn’t make it all the way to the final, winning this award will certainly be a huge consolation for Oshoala, the team and the country at large. So, while you watch her goal below, you can vote for her here.
