Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala has won the best goal for the UEFA Women’s Champions League 2023/24 season.

Oshoala netted a stunning bicycle kick in Barcelona’s 5-0 win over Benfica in their opening group game en route to the Catalans claiming the Champions League for the second consecutive season.

With the Blaugrana already 4-0 up, Jonatan Giráldez sent the reigning Women’s African Footballer of The Year, and she wasted no time in making her mark in the game, scoring the last goal of the encounter in style – her only goal of the competition.

She thereafter made a mid-season move to American side, Bay FC.

      “The top 10 goals of the 2023/24 UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign have been selected by UEFA’s Technical Observer panel, with Nigerian forward Asisat Oshoala taking the prize for Goal of the Season thanks to her stunning bicycle kick for Barcelona against Benfica on Matchday 1,” UEFA wrote on their website.

      “Also, for Barça, midfielder Aitana Bonmatí took second spot for her bending effort in the quarterfinals second-leg win against Brann, while Lyon’s Delphine Cascarino came third for her long-range strike in the quarterfinals second-leg victory over Benfica.”

      Oshoala made history with Barcelona Femení by becoming the first African to win three UEFA Women’s Champions League titles.

      The 29-year-old received a winner’s medal despite her mid-season transfer to Bay FC in the United States. The Super Falcons striker contributed to Barcelona’s Champions League campaign by playing in two group-stage matches and scoring once before her move.
