Asisat Oshoala was on target for Barcelona in their 7-0 win over Tenerife in an away Spanish Primera Iberdrola encounter on Saturday.

It was a dream return for the Super Falcons Captain who made her return to Barcelona squad, since November 2021.

The forward ruptured posterior cruciate ligament in her right knee and has been sidelined since 13 November 2021.  

She was introduced into the game in the 76th minute. He took the place of Lieke Martens, and scored the 7th goal for the club few minutes later.

The 27-year-old forward has now scored 12 goals in 10 league outings this season. She will look to continue her fine run against Sporting Huelva on Wednesday.
