Asisat Oshoala, 2020 IFFHS  Africa Queen

The 26-year-old Asisat Lamina Oshoala has overshadowed fears of covid-19 victimization to emerge IFFHS best female pick on the continent for 2020 before Cameroon's Ajara Nchout Njoya and the sisters Chawinga (Malawi).To achieve the feat, football experts and connoisseurs from IFFHS assessed the FC Barcelona Femini No. 20-shirted player’s scoring power of 9 goals in the Primera Division and a lone strike in UEFA Champions League, as well as her outstanding contribution to her  team’s successes in the Super Copa Catalunya, and found them the strongest arguments in her favour. 

Four-time CAF Africa Player-of-the-year in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019, the player who also stars as the 8-shirted player of the Nigeria National team, The Super Falcons is said to be on a meteoric rise in her trade after such resplendent accolades as  2014 FIFA U-20 best player and highest scorer with 7 goals;  3 African Women’s Championships won in 2014, 2016 and 2018 emerging Golden boot and Golden ball in 2014 and Golden Boot in 2016; the 2018/19 UEFA Women’s Champions League silver medal; and features in the 2020 IFFHS Africa top-11.

By winning the 2020 IFFHS Best African Women’s Player Award, Oshoala is simply lending credibility to her unquestionable innate talent that she herself believes could always be helped exposed in every female. That explains why her Lagos-based Asisat Oshoala Foundation which has already trained more than 5000 young girls is bent on moulding many more Ashoalas for the good of the African game.
