Asisat Oshoala Enchants Barcelona Fans in Debut

Super Falcons of Nigeria star Asisat Oshoala began her loan spell with FC Barcelona Femeni on a magnificent note scoring on her debut for the Catalan club in their 4-0 away win at Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.

The former Liverpool forward scored Barcelona’s fourth goal of the encounter in the 63rd minute from her first touch, less than a minute after replacing Alexia Putellas.

Barcelona had a two-goal advantage early in the first half with goals from Putellas and Lieke Martens coming in the 15th and 16th minutes simultaneously.

Mariona Caldentey added the third a minute before the half-hour mark as the visitors totally overran the home team.

Oshoala, who joined Dalian Quanjian from Arsenal, joined the Blaugranes Ladies on a six-month loan deal last month.
