Asisat Oshoala’s solo World Cup strike nominated for Goal of Tournament


Nigeria’s FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign was a remarkable experience, but it could even be more as striker Asisat Oshoala’s goal has been nominated as goal of the tournament.

A solo run, power-play, rounding of the goalie and an acute angle hit captures the sequence of Asisat’s goal against South Korea, which also guaranteed Nigeria’s win.


On Monday, FIFA released a list of 10 selected goals from the just concluded competition – with only two African goals selected.



Asisat and Cameroon Ajara Nchout’s match winner against New Zealand in the final group game was also selected.


The Nigerian’s reaction to her nomination was: Oh wow …..up for goal of the tourney
