Ikorodu – Lagos Mainland born Nigerian international Asisat Oshoala has been named the African Women’s Footballer of the Year.
The China based forward previously won the award in 2014 and 2016 and she picked her third gong beating Cameroonian Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene and Chrestina Kgatlana of South Africa to the top prize.
Recall that Asisat who was voted the 2015 BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year moved to Dalian Quanjian of China at the beginning of last season after enduring a not-so-successful period in England with Liverpool and Arsenal Ladies.
In her first season in China, she notched 12 goals including a brace in the final game of the season.
Asisat’s exploits earned Quanjian a league and Cup double and she was crowned the League’s Best Striker.
