Oshoala 2022 Ballon D’Or nominees

Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala, has been nominated for the 2022 women’s Ballon d’Or.

The 27-year-old Nigerian made the 20-woman list that was announced on Friday for the award because of her exploits with Barcelona Femeni during the just concluded 2021/22 season.

Oshoala won the golden boot in the Spanish Primera Division, scored 20 goals in 19 league appearances for Barcelona Femeni and shared the award with Geyse Ferreira of Madrid CFF, who netted 20 goals in 27 appearances.

Other nominees for the women’s Ballon d’Or include Chelsea’s Mille Bright, Alex Morgan of the USA, and the France quartet of Selma Bacha, Kadidiatou Diani, Wendie Renard, and Marie Katoto.

In the men’s category, Lionel Messi was left out of the Ballon d’Or 30-man shortlist for the first time since 2005, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland are all on the list.
