Oshoala contributed 26 goals in all competitions for Barcelona, including 20 in 19 league games to emerge as the league’s second-highest scorer during the 2019-20 season.

Oshoala recently won her maiden Spanish Primera Iberdrola title with Barcelona Femeni. The country’s football body crowned the Catalan club champions following their inability to conclude the season due to deadly coronavirus.
Anaedoonline.com reported that the Barcelona striker has modeled her own game on a number of former Nigeria internationals
Oshoala recently opened up on her admiration for Super Falcons legends Mercy Akide and Perpetua Nkwocha during her youthful days.
While missing a chance to play alongside Akide, Oshoala made her senior debut in 2012 and was privileged to star alongside Nkwocha before her retirement.
She only burst on to the international scene in 2014 at the U20 Women’s World Cup in Canada where she scooped the golden boot and golden ball despite the Falconets finishing as runners-up.
