Asisat Oshoala receives Pichichi award for the 2021-22 Spain Primera Division Women League Top Scorer
Super Falcons and FC Barcelona Femeni striker officially received their Pichichi trophies for finishing the 2021-2022 Spanish Primera Division Women League season as top scorers with 20 goals.
In Spanish football, the Pichichi is awarded by the sports newspaper Marca to the top goalscorer of each Spanish Primera Division Women League season. All top scorers who preceded the award’s creation were retroactively named Pichichi winners by Marca.
Asisat Oshoala played a major role as Barcelona were crowned Liga champions for the third time in a row and seventh overall after winning all 30 of their games in the season, an unprecedented achievement in the league’s history. In August of this year, the former Rivers Angels forward became the first African woman to be nominated for the Ballon d’Or féminin.
Oshoala is the sole record holder for the most awards the CAF Women’s Footballer of the Year has won (5), and the Pichichi is another award for her remarkable personal collection.
