FIFA celebrates Asisat Oshoala for winning Spanish league highest goalscorer Pichichi Award

World football governing body, FIFA, has celebrated Super Falcons striker and captain, Asisat Oshoala for finishing as top scorer in the Primera Iberdrola (Spanish women’s first division).

Oshoala ended the season with 20 goals and three assists in 19 games despite a three month injury-induced layoff.

She had some tight competition before clinching the award.

Geyse Ferreira of Real Madrid scored 20 goals but did it in 27 appearances and recorded one assist compared to Oshoala’s record in 19 games.

Reacting to Oshoala’s top scorer’s award, FIFA described her performance for Barcelona this term as perfect.

“20 goals and a perfect club season.

“@AsisatOshoala has always been unstoppable! ?“ FIFA wrote on their Women’s World Cup Twitter handle.
