Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala made a great start to her loan spell with FC Barcelona Women’s team by scoring on her debut for the club in their 4-0 away win against Rayo Vallecano in a league clash at the Ciudad Deportiva on Sunday, reports Completesports.com.
Oshoala scored Barcelona’s fourth goal of the encounter in the 63rd minute with her first touch of the game less than a minute after replacing Alexia Putellas.
Barcelona raced into a two goal lead early in the first half with Putellas and Lieke Martens scoring in the 15th and 16th minutes respectively.
Mariona Caldentey added the third a minute before the half hour mark as the visitors totally overran the home team.
Oshoala linked up with the Barcelona Ladies on a six-month loan deal from Chinese side Dalian Quanjian last month.
