Oshoala Wins 5th CAF Player Of The Year 2022

After a stellar season in which she won Spain’s Pichichi award for the top scorer, Oshoala became the first player to win five women’s awards, having previously shared eight with compatriot Perpetua Nkwocha.She was voted ahead of Cameroon’s Inter Milan player Ajara Nchout Njoya and Grace Chanda, whose Zambia side qualified for the Women’s World Cup for the first time earlier this month.“It’s a record-breaking night for me, as an individual, and for Africa as a whole – I’ve got five today, five!” Oshoala exclaimed.“2021-22 season was really tough for me as an individual, and I’d like to thank everyone who has stood by me.
“If you don’t fall, you don’t know the power of comeback and what comeback means,” said a player who managed her scoring feats despite a lengthy spell out with injury.Oshoala dedicated her award to Nigeria’s Super Falcons, praising the team for the heart they showed when losing Monday’s Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (Wafcon) semi-final on penalties despite playing nearly an hour two women down.https://youtu.be/h3Y0q71O-TY
