Nigeria international striker and Super Falcons’ captain, Asisat Oshoala, once again showed how important she is to Barcelona female team after she struck a brace on Saturday as her team thrashed Real Madrid 4 – 0 in Spanish Primera Iberdrola.

She also stole the show in Madrid with a woman-of-the-match display.

A goal in each half from Oshoala plus Jennifer Hermoso and Aitana Bonmati’s strikes guided Barcelona past Madrid’s women side in the encounter.

Oshoala, who was in action for only 68 minutes, has now scored in five successive games for Barcelona and has eight goals in 11 games in all competitions this season.

However, fellow Nigerian, Chidimma Okeke who plays for the Madrid ladies, was taken off in tears as she suffered a serious injury at the 25th minute of the game.
