Asisat Oshoala secures her sixth African Women’s Player of the Year Award, marking a historic achievement in her career.


Asisat Oshoala, the forward for Super Falcons and Barcelona Femeni, has achieved history by securing her sixth African Women’s Player of the Year award.

The 29-year-old received this prestigious accolade at a gala in Marrakesh, Morocco, marking the most wins ever by an African female footballer. Oshoala’s previous victories in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2022 underscore her sustained excellence in women’s football.

Oshoala’s dominance in the sport is evident, and this latest recognition reaffirms her extraordinary talent and unwavering commitment. A true inspiration to aspiring young girls, she exemplifies that hard work and determination can turn dreams into reality.

This award adds to Oshoala’s impressive list of accomplishments, including two UEFA Women’s Champions League titles with Barcelona and successful leadership of the Nigerian national team.

In addition to Oshoala’s triumph, Chiamaka Nnadozie from Nigeria secured the women’s goalkeeper of the year prize, while the Super Falcons were honored as the best women’s national team on the continent. The CAF women’s best XI included Michelle Alozie and Tosin Demehin from Nigeria.

However, Deborah Abiodun narrowly missed out on the women’s best young player award, which went to Nesryne El Chad of Morocco.
