Nigeria and Barcelona forward Asisat Oshoala won her fourth African Women’s Player of the Year crown at the Caf awards on Tuesday.
In walking to the winners’ podium, Oshoala dethroned 2018 winner South Africa forward Thembi Kgatlana and Cameroon’s Ajara Nchout, who were also up for the award.
It was the fourth time for Oshoala to be named Africa’s best women’s player and she has now equalled compatriot Perpetua Nkwocha, who also won the same award on four occasions before.
After winning the 2014, 2016 and 2017 awards, Oshoala came back to reclaim the prestigious crown for women’s football in Africa.
Despite scoring two goals at the Fifa Women’s World Cup last year, Nchout fell behind Oshoala who managed just a goal for Nigeria at the global tournament.
