Although still only 27, Asisat Oshoala could cement her place in the history books as Africa’s Greatest Women’s footballer before hanging her boots!

With this award, Asisat Oshoala has overtaken Perpetual Nkwocha as Africa’s Women’s Greatest player. Recall that Perpetual Nkwocha had won the CAF Women’s player of the year award on four occasions.

Impressively, the pacy Nigerian forward scored 20 goals in 19 league appearances last term. Asisat Oshola emerged joint top scorer in the Spanish women league alongside Brazilian Geyse Ferreira of Madrid CFF. In contrast, the Brazilian scored the same number of goals but in 37 appearances.

Furthermore, Asisat Oshoala achieved this feat while missing a couple of matches due to injury.

Nevertheless, she still managed to find her way into the team and helped Barcelona Women to an unprecedented Quadruple. 

Now, the question is: Can Asisat Oshoala maintain her position as Africa’s Women’s Greatest player? Or will her 5times African Women’s player of the year be surpassed in the future?

As they say, the future will tell.

Congratulations, Asisat Oshoala, winner of CAF Women’s player of the year 2022!
