Nigerian striker included in Barcelona’s Champions League squad

Super Falcons’ striker, Asisat Oshoala, included in Barcelona’s

18-woman squad, for their 2019/2020 Women’s Champions League Round of 32 tie against

Juventus in Turin.

Oshoala was initially signed on loan from China’s Jiangsu Suning in January.

And she scored the Blaugranes’ only goal in their maiden Champions League final last season.

Her goal for Barcelona in the 4-1 loss to Lyon at the Groupama Arena in Budapest  saw her

became the first African woman to play and score in the Champions League final.

Oshoala has since signed a three-year permanent deal with the side, after scoring eight goals

in 11 appearances.

Barcelona will begin their Champions League journey with a first-leg trip to Turin on Tuesday.
