The 25-year-old, who opened the scoring in Barcelona’s 5-0 win over Minsk in the Champions League, scored her side’s fourth goal of the match on the hour-mark at the Johan Cruyff Stadium.

Before Oshoala’s strike, Marta Torrejón, Jenni Hermoso, Aitana Bonmati had given the hosts a 3-0 lead at half-time, while Kheira Hamraoui struck nine minutes from full-time to wrap up the victory.

Oshoala, who was in action for 60 minutes before being replaced by Claudia Pina, has now scored in four successive games for Barcelona, six goals in 10 games in all competitions this season.

The victory means Barcelona are back on top on goal difference despite tied on 16 points with Deportivo La Corona after six games.

Oshoala will hope to continue with her fine form when the Spanish giants take on Chidinma Okeke’s Madrid in their next encounter on October 26.
