Nigeria’s Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala makes history with new NWSL Club, Bay FC

Asisat Oshoala again stole the spotlight as Bay FC continued their impressive form with a victory against Racing Louisville on June 29.

The Super Falcons forward was on hand to deliver the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) newcomers their sixth victory of the season.

Albertin Montoya’s team, which had faced a turbulent and inconsistent debut campaign, desperately needed a victory to bring some stability to their season as they pursue a championship playoff spot. Oshoala stepped up to ensure her team’s success.

The reigning and record six-time Confederation of African Football (CAF) Women’s Player of the Year again etched her name in the history books at Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky.

With her strike in the 76th minute, the former Barcelona Femení forward became the first-ever scorer of a penalty in the NWSL for Bay FC, as reported by Punch Sports.

The Nigerian forward had also found the back of the net three times this season, with all her strikes coming on the road.

Oshoala took to social media to react after further etching her name in the club’s history.

It should also be noted that the superstar forward also scored the first-ever goal for the new club in the NWSL against Angel City FC.
