86: Asisat Oshoala

Oshoala’s move to China raised eyebrows but the goals have not stopped coming for the former Liverpool and Arsenal striker. Her form was the key factor in Dalian’s second successive Chinese Super League win, a hat-trick at Shanghai putting them in control of the title race. The Nigerian found the net 10 times overall as her club completed the domestic double. She spent November at the Africa Women Cup of Nations, where another treble in Nigeria’s final group game propelled them to the final four. Oshoala missed a penalty in the final but ended the tournament victorious as Nigeria sealed another AWCON title.

Thomas Dennerby, Nigeria head coach:

“Asisat won the league with her club again in China in 2018 and she was the runner-up for the golden boot, she knows how to score goals and she’s been a big part of the Super Falcons squad that qualified for the World Cup and won the Africa Cup of Nations.”
