Oshoala misses out on FIFPRO World XI shortlist

Published:

Super Falcons captain, Asisat Oshoala, has failed to make the FIFPRO World XI shortlist which was announced on Wednesday.

The four-time African Women’s Player of The Year was Barcelona’s leading scorer this season, scoring twelve goals in twelve appearances, and the top scorer in the Spanish League with eleven goals in nine games before her posterior cruciate ligament injury.

The 26-year-old is also the first African winner of the European Women’s Champions League.

CSKA Moscow’s Cameroonian striker Gabrielle Onguene becomes the only African player to make the list due to Oshoala’s absence.

Also in the shortlist are Oshoala’s Barcelona teammates Aitana Bonmati and Alexia Putellas. Chelsea ladies had five players in the World XI shortlist.

Ann-Katrin Berger, Millie Bright, Sam Kerr, Pernille Harder and captain Magdalena Eriksson were all included after the Blues’ first appearance in the Women’s Champions League final.

Manchester City’s Lucy Bronze – the current holder of the Best FIFA Women’s Player award – was also shortlisted. Arsenal forward Vivianne Miedema completes the list of nominated players in the Women’s Super League this season.

The women’s World XI will also be announced during the Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony next month.
