Asisat Oshoala, a forward with the Super Falcons, has been named a nominee for the 2022 Women’s Ballon d’Or Player of the Year honor.
She was included on the 20-woman shortlist on Friday as a result of her achievements with FC Barcelona femeni.
The 27-year-old football player was named the 2022 CAF Women’s Player of the Year last month, overtaking her countrywoman Perpetua Nkwocha for the sixth time she has won the award.
She will, however, compete for the Ballon d’Or award against strong competitors including Sam Kerr, Vivianne Miedema, Beth Mead, and Alex Morgan.
