Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala has become the first African player to win the women’s UEFA Champions League after Barcelona Femeni thrashed Chelsea 4-0.
With this win, Barcelona also becomes the first Spanish team to win the trophy.
Oshoala came off the bench in the 71st minute for Jennifer Hermoso. The Super Falcons captain scored in added time but the goal was ruled offside.
Oshoala contributed 4 goals in 9 matches for her side in this season’s Champions League as she became the first African winner of the competition ever, adding to her record as the only African finals scorer in the history of the competition when she scored in the final against PSG in 2019 and the first African to play in two Champions League finals.
