Nigerian striker Oshoala named in Barcelona Champions League squad

Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala has been named in Barcelona Ladies squad for the UEFA Women's Champions clash against Juventus.

Oshoala is part of the 18-woman squad for the Round of 32 fixture in Turin.

They will begin their Champions League campaign with a first-leg trip to Turin on Tuesday, which will see them face off against Rita Guarino’s side at Stadio Giuseppe Moccagatta on Wednesday.

The Nigeria international signed a three-year contract with the Spanish outfit after a loan spell.

Last season, Oshoala scored Barcelona's only goal in their maiden Champions League final where they suffered a 4-1 loss to Lyon at the Groupama Arena in Budapest.

That goal saw her become the first African woman to play and score in the Champions League final.
