Super Falcons captain, Asisat Oshoala, yesterday continued her impressive runs with a brace for the second consecutive game as Barcelona registered a 3-0 win against Athletic Club in a Primera División Femenina, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
The former Arsenal and Liverpool striker came off the bench to score in the 77th minute and 86th minute of the encounter at San Mamés Barria.
And with this her effort, she became the first player to score a brace for a Barcelona team this decade.
Against Athletic Club, Oshoala doubled Barcelona’s advantage when she nodded home a brilliant cross from Hamraoui in the 77th minute and the Nigerian capitalised on a rebound to score her team’s third goal four minutes from time.
The African Player of the Year nominee has now reached double digits for league goals for Barcelona this season, which she didn’t manage during her spell with her previous European clubs.
