SUPER FALCON ASISAT OSHOALA WINS THIRD FEMALE AFRICAN PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD.
Super Falcon Asisat Oshoala was named Women’s Footballer of the Year Asisat in Ghana’s capital city Accra on last night.
Oshoala previously won the award in 2014 and 2016. She beat Cameroonian Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene and Chrestina Kgatlana of South Africa to the top prize.
The 2015 BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year moved to Dalian Quanjian of China at the beginning of last season after enduring a not-so-successful period in England with Liverpool and Arsenal Ladies.
Her exploits earned Quanjian a league and Cup double and she was crowned the League’s Best Striker.
