Oshoala Wins Women’s UCL Best Goal Award

The goal scored by Asisat Oshoala in Barcelona’s match against Benfica has been selected by UEFA as the Women’s Champions League Goal of the 2023–24 Season.

Barcelona defeated Benfica 5-0 in their first group game, and Oshoala scored the game’s final goal with an incredible bicycle kick to help the Catalans win the Champions League for the second year in a row.

As the Blaugrana led 4-0 at the half, Jonatan Giráldez threw the reigning Women’s African Footballer of the Year into the match, and she did not waste any time in making an impression. She scored the game’s final goal in style, which turned out to be her lone goal of the competition.

She then transferred to American team Bay FC in the middle of the season.

“The top ten goals of the 2023/24 UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign have been selected by UEFA’s Technical Observer panel, with Nigerian forward Asisat Oshoala taking the prize for Goal of the Season thanks to her stunning bicycle kick for Barcelona against Benfica on Matchday 1,” the football body wrote on Monday, May 27.

“Also for Barça, midfielder Aitana Bonmatí took second spot for her bending effort in the quarter-finals second-leg win against Brann, while Lyon’s Delphine Cascarino came third for her long-range strike in the quarter-finals second-leg victory over Benfica.”

Oshoala, 29, created history with Barcelona Femení, being the first African to win three UEFA Women’s Champions League titles.

Despite her midseason switch to Bay FC in the United States, she was awarded a winner’s medal.

Prior to her departure, the Super Falcons striker helped Barcelona in the Champions League by appearing in two group-stage matches and scoring one.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
