Oshoala Wins UEFA Women’s Champions League ‘Goal Of The Season’

Oshoala clinched the plaque with her stunning bicycle kick goal in the Women’s Champions League Matchday One fixture between Spanish giants Barcelona and Portuguese outfit Benfica.

She eventually left Barcelona mid-season to join the newly founded top-flight club Bay FC in the United States.
