The Nigeria forward who has been injured since last November returned to score her first goal in 2022 for Spanish Primera Iberdrola side, FC Barcelona during her team’s 0-7 triumph over Roosa Ariyo’s Granadilla Tenerife on Saturday.
www.kick442.com had earlier reported that Asisat Oshoala has been given a green light to return to the field of play ahead of today’s league game.
The Super Falcons captain replaced Lieke Martens in the 76th minute and scored Barcelona’s seventh goal in the 89th minute.
The goal increased Oshoala’s tally to 12 league goals this season, the same goal with 2021 Ballon d’or winner, Alexia Putellas and a goal behind the top goalscorer in the league, Lieke Martens.
Roosa Ariyo was an unused substitute for Granadilla Tenerife.
FC Barcelona occupies the first position on the league table with a maximum of 48 points from 16 games.
The European Champions will next face Huelva on January 12, 2022.
