Asisat Oshoala was asked recently if she considers herself as one of the best players in the world, Reelradio.com.ng reports.
“Absolutely,” said the 28-year-old Nigeria forward. “I mean I have the numbers, so I have to take that [view].”
It is hard to argue with Oshoala. She is a superstar and the biggest threat to the Lionesses ahead of their World Cup last-16 clash with her Super Falcons in Brisbane on Monday.
Oshoala has just won the Champions League with Barcelona, is a five-time African player of the year, a champion for gender equality and has set up the Asisat Oshoala Foundation with the ambition of helping young girls from Africa pursue a career in sport.
