Oshoala, Nnadozie make Goal’s top five women’s list


Super Falcons players Asisat Oshoala and  Chiamaka Nnadozie made the African Women’s Player list in August.

This list, which was released by Goal on Thursday, also had three other women players.

Others who made the list are young Malawi sensation, Temwa Chawinga; Cameroonian Ajara Nchout, and Shepolopolo forward, Rachel Nachula.

Oshoala is a three-time African Women’s Footballer of the Year. She scored nine goals in five pre-season games for Barcelona, including a 4-0 Copa Catalunya win over Espanyol in Palamos, where she celebrated her first silverware in Spain.

On her part, 18-year-old Nnadozie saved three times from the spot as Nigeria came from behind to pip Cameroon on penalties to win the African Games for the first time in 12 years.

The 2019 Women’s World Cup breakout star followed on from her outstanding showing in France with heroic goalkeeping in Nigeria’s African Games triumph in Morocco.

Apart from making the women’s list, Nnadozie made the African team of the month.

She headlined the category with Hamari Traore, Joel Matip, Erick Mathoho, Arthur Masuaku, Hakim Ziyech,  Kenneth Muguna, Mohamed Salah, Tammy Abraham and Eric Choupo-Moting.
