Asisat Oshoala has taken to social media to celebrate Barcelona‘s 9-1 triumph over CD Tacon in their Spanish Liga Iberdrola game at the Johan Cruyff Stadium.
The Nigeria international, who scored eight goals in five pre-season games, was hoping to replicate her fine form in their opener on their new home ground against the newly-promoted side.
The 24-year-old came close twice, in the 12th and 39th minutes, but was denied by the woodwork before being replaced seven minutes after the half-time break.
Jenni Hermoso’s hat trick, Aitana Bonmati’s brace with a goal each from Alexia Putellas and Mariona, as well as Lucía Suarez’s own goal ensured they condemned their visitors to a heavy defeat.
Despite failing to make a scoring start this term, Oshoala expressed her joy over her side’s rout on social media.
