Oshoala, who plays for Barcelona, won the award ahead of Grace Chanda (Zambia/BIIK Kazygurt) and Ajara Nchout Njoya (Cameroon/Inter Milan).

This is her fifth time winning the award, surpassing former Falcons striker Perpetua Nkwocha. Oshoala has won it four times: in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2019.



“This is a historic night for me, as an individual, and for Africa as a whole – I’ve got five today, five!” Oshoala yelled.



“The 2021-22 season was extremely difficult for me as an individual, and I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me.”


“If you don’t fall, you don’t know the power of comeback and what comeback means,” said a player who scored despite a lengthy injury layoff.


Oshoala dedicated her award to Nigeria’s Super Falcons, praising the team for their tenacity in losing the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (Wafcon) semi-final on penalties on Monday, July 18, despite playing nearly an hour with two women down.
