Super Falcons forward, Asisat Oshoala and Barcelona Women made history by making it to their first ever UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) final.
This came on the back of a 2-0 aggregate scoreline after defeating Bayern Women 1-0 in both legs to make it to their maiden Champions League Cup final with the Super Falcons featuring as a 70th minute substitute in the decider which took place on Sunday.

In China, Francisca Ordega’s haul of five goals and six assists in five games since joining Shanghai few weeks back ensured that her team made it to the final of the Chinese Women’s FA Cup.
Ordega will now face Elizabeth Addo of Ghana and Tabitha Chawinga of Malawi who both scored as Jiangsu Suning thrashed Wuhan 6-0 away from home. Important to note that Chawinga contributed three of the six goals.
So it’s Shanghai vs Jiangsu Suning in the final of the Chinese Women’s FA Cup.
As always in recent games, Super Falcons Ngozi Sonia Okobi started from the bench while Halimatu Ayinde featured from the start to the end as Eskilstuna United lost by a lone goal to Vaxjo in Sweden.
While Rita Chikwelu’s Kristianstads played out a 2-2 draw with Goteborg on Sunday afternoon. There would be a repeat of this fixture on Wednesday, May 1st when both sides do battle in the final of the Swedish Women’s Cup.
The home-based Falcons though are expected to resume training in Abuja today ahead of the upcoming WAFU Women’s Tournament.
