Asisat Oshoala

Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala scored her first goal in English football to help defending Women’s Super League One champions Liverpool overcome Birmingham City.¬†Oshoala was lively before meeting a Gemma Bonner cross to volley home just before the break. Oshoala cut the ball back for Fara Williams to make it 2-0 before Aoife Mannion gave Birmingham late hope. The match ended 2 – 1 in favour of Liverpool Ladies. Oshoala said: “I feel very happy and excited about the goal and the victory for the team. “It’s very nice for me hearing them singing my name. It’s a crazy atmosphere. I have never seen supporters like this and I have been playing football for quite a long time now. The supporters here are awesome, they are great people. “It’s been a difficult start to the season but I believed we would bounce back. We showed the spirit here is very high, and we are really giving everything.”
