Nigeria women and Liverpool Ladies forward, Asisat Oshoala has said she is fulfilling a dream turning out for the Reds after signing in the winter.
The reigning African Women footballer of the Year got her first league goal of the season after helping her side to a 2-1 victory over Birmingham Ladie after volleying in on the stroke of half-time before setting up Fara Williams for Liverpool’s second, with Aoife Mannion’s late strike not enough for the visitors.
“I feel very happy and excited about the goal and the victory for the team,” she said. “It was a great atmosphere, the support from the fans was extraordinary,” Oshoala told media
“It’s very nice for me hearing them singing my name. It’s a crazy atmosphere. I have never seen supporters like this and I have been playing football for quite a long time now.
“The supporters here are awesome, they are great people. Playing for Liverpool Ladies is a dream come true.
“It’s been a difficult start to the season but I believed we would bounce back. We showed the spirit here is very high, and we are really giving everything,” she concluded.
