ASISAT OSHOALA, voted most outstanding player at every tournament she participated in 2014; the Fifa U-20 World Cup in Canada, the African Women’s Championship in Namibia and the Federation Cup, Oshoala became the shining light of women’s football in Nigeria.
She was also awarded a Master of the Order of the Niger (MON) by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Germany edged Nigeria 1-0 after extra-time to win a record-equaling third title in Montreal on Sunday.
It was not all gloomy for Rivers Angels markswoman, Oshoala, who clinched double gongs in the form of the adidas Golden Ball and Golden Boot, courtesy of her seven goals and two assists.
Aside the opening day draw with Mexico, ‘Super Zee’ as she is fondly called by her team-mates, netted in all of the Super Falconets matches- including a brace against South Korea and four goals in the 6-2 semi-final mauling of North Korea.
