WATCH: Oshoala scores Messi-esque goal in Barcelona Femeni demolition of Villarreal
The Super Falcons star was on the scoresheet as Barcelona thrashed Villarreal during the weekend
Sharp awareness, pace, intelligent run and a delicate, beautifully-chipped finish were all constituents of Asisat Oshoala’s goal against Villarreal Ladies.
The former Arsenal Ladies forward chose he return from injury to remind what she’s capable of again, after winning the Pichichi last term.
Oshoala opened her season’s account for the new campaign during the weekend and will be looking to contend for the top scorer award again.

Her goal, Messi-esque in terms of the quality of her run, fast-thinking and distance also embraces the execution of arguably the world’s greatest player ever.
Nigeria will hope to see the same of her star player when they play against Japan in an international friendly game ahead of the Women’a World Cup.
Oshoala has not represented the Super Falcons since suffering a knee injury in the 2-0 opening loss to South Africa at the last WAFCON in Morocco.
She’s one of the bigger names in the Nigerian squad expected to take games on the scruff and apply her quality.
