Oshoala scores on Barca debut

Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala had a great start to her six – month loan spell at FC Barcelona ’ s women ’ s team after scoring on her debut for the club in their 4 – 0 away win against Rayo Vallecano in a league clash at the Ciudad Deportiva on Sunday.
Oshoala scored Barcelona ’ s fourth goal of the encounter in the 63 rd minute with her first touch of the game, less than a minute after replacing Alexia Putellas .

Barcelona raced into a two – goal lead early in the first half with Putellas and Lieke Martens scoring in the 15 th and 16 th minutes respectively .

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

The 2018 AWCON winner had been left out of Barcelona ’ s game against Albacete the previous weekend but Barca women ’ s head coach , Luis Cortes , was optimistic Oshoala would shine against Rayo .

“ Asisat has arrived in a good physical condition … I think that from next week ( Sunday) she can start to bring us very good things to the team , ” Cortes told the media , while explaining why the 24 – year -old Nigerian was left out against Albacete .

Oshoala duly paid Cortes back with a goal on her debut for the Catalans.

The three – time CAF Women’ s Player of the Year joined Barca with a huge European pedigree, having previously featured for English giants Arsenal ( 2016 ) and Liverpool ( 2015 ) , before moving to the Chinese League with Dalian Quanjian, where she was top scorer in 2017 .

She linked up with Barca from Dalian Quanjian last month .
