Super Falcons and Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala on Thursday night won her fifth African Women’s Player of the Year award at the CAF awards ceremony in Rabat, Morocco.
She beat the likes of Cameroonian Ajara Nchout Njoya and Grace Chanda of Zambia to claim the top prize.
It will be the fifth time for Oshoala to be named Africa’s best women’s player and she has now surpassed Perpetua Nkwocha with this year’s award.
Oshoala withdrew from WAFCON 2022 in Morocco after suffering an ankle injury in the opening match 2-1 defeat to Bayana Bayana of South Africa.
Oshoala finished top scorer in the Liga Iberdrola with 20 goals in 19 appearances to become the first African to win the Pichichi award in Spain.
