“Allah is too faithful to fail,” says Asisat Oshoala. In not failing nor disappointing was what made the God she so believed in to catapult her into limelight from a near oblivion FC Robo to Rivers Angel, Liverpool Ladies, Arsenal Ladies, Dalian Quanjian FC to Barcelona Femeni in 2019, where Providence engraced her to become the first African female footballer to ever play in the final match of European Women Champions League.
Asisat is a lady of many firsts. More goals to your boots, Ikorodu Oga!
Happy Birthday, Asisat Lamina Oshoala.
