Asisat Oshoala wins 6th Player of the Year at CAF Awards 2023

IKEJA, Nigeria - Dec. 13, 2023 - PRLog -- Asisat Lamina Oshoala MON is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Spanish Liga F club Barcelona and the Nigeria women's national team. Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala has added another feather to her cap, winning the illustrious African Women's Player of the Year for a record-extending sixth time.

The Barcelona star was crowned the winner of the 2023 CAF Women's Player of the Year to earn the feat at the award ceremony in the Moroccan city of Marrakech, continuing her dominance in the continent's women's game. Oshoala received the prize in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2022 and beat South Africa's Thembi Kgatlana and Barbara Banda of Zambia to bag the latest accolade that cemented her status in the continent's women's game.

Oshoala said in her speech after accepting the award "This night, I would love to use this opportunity to thank everyone who has been part of my journey from the grassroot football to the national level and the club side. Because without you, my coaches, and my teammates, there will be no me" she also said "football is a team sport; it's a team game and I urge all the federations in Africa to please come together; let's work together and build our continent. Let's make it the best in the world. "It is very possible; it happened in the last men's World Cup; we saw what happened, and we shocked the world. In the last World Cup, all the national teams that represented Africa in Australia made history. "And I believe that before the next World Cup, we can get better, we can do better and we can win it for sure. Because at the end of the day, if we don't support ourselves, nobody will come to Africa; nobody will come to this continent to support us.
