Oshoala was shortlisted for her stunning goal, which contributed to the Super Falcons’ 2-0 win over South Korea — making Nigeria the first African country to win their second group gamein the history of the competition.

The 24-year-old scored the goal after receiving a long pass in the 75th minute. She had dribbled past a defender and the goalkeeper, slipping the ball into the net from a really tight angle. She made the shortlist alongside nine other nominees.

Given that Nigeria couldn’t make it all the way to the final, winning this award will certainly be a huge consolation for Oshoala, the team and the country at large. So, while you watch her goal below, you can vote for her here.
