Asisat Oshoala wins treble with Barcelona


Asisat Oshoala’s Barcelona have completed a treble having defeated Levante 4-2 in Sunday’s Copa de la Reina final.

The Blaugranes had won the Uefa Women’s Champions and Primera Division diadem for a record sixth time earlier this season.

Against the Granores, Lluis Cortes’ women put up a sublime display to tear apart their opponent at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.

For reigning African Women’s Player of the Year Oshoala, she was an unused substitute in the encounter that produced six goals.

Following her side’s 4-0 defeat of Chelsea at the Gamla Ullevi, Gothenburg, the 26-year-old became the first Nigerian as well as the first African to win the Uefa Women’s Champions League.

In a recent interview, she hoped her European triumph would inspire other young girls in Africa to chase their dreams.

“It was very important not to make the mistakes of the past [the 4-1 loss to Lyon] but to learn from it,” Oshoala told BBC Sport Africa.
