Asisat Oshoala Sets Ballon d’Or record


Super Falcons star, Asisat Oshoala has been ranked 16th by French Football in the Balon D’or awards held, Monday in Paris.

Oshoala was ranked 16th – the highest for any African player – on the night which saw fellow FC Barcelona Femeni player, Alexia Putellas, crowned Queen of Women’s football.

The first ever African woman to be nominated for Ballon d’or, despite enduring a difficult year with the Super Falcons, however, enjoyed some success with Barcelona Femeni and was named African Women footballer of the year.

Oshoala was in tremendous form for Barcelona last season as she scored 20 goals in 19 appearances and laid on 3 assists to win the Pichichi.
