The Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala and Argentine star Lionel Messi shares some amazing quality time together in Barcelona as the duo hold top position in the Barcelona female and male teams respectively.
Asisat Oshoala may be compared to Lionel Messi She’s also a forward, she’s a very prolific goalscorer. And yet she’s crazy about the Argentine’s talent.
“It is amazing to know that I am at the same club as Messi. He is the best soccer player I have ever seen.”
Oshoala is a true revelation for Barca Femeni. Although her talent has been undeniable for years, Barcelona managed to seal her signing only last summer when she was 24.
The Nigerian is doing really great for Barca this season. She has bagged 21 goals in 22 games for the Catalans’ women team in 2019/20.
In January, Oshoala was awarded the African Women’s Best Player 2019 prize. It was the fourth time the 25-years-old won the award, as she also picked it up in 2014, 2016, 2017
Whether on or off the pitch, Asisat Oshoala has continued to inspire African women across age groups. She demonstrates this, by empowering them with life skills and football development charity initiatives. In line with Emzor’s trailblazing efforts, we restate our commitment to Asisat, our brand ambassador and hope that she can continue to inspire more.”
