Super Falcons captain Asisat Oshoala unveils new Barcelona jersey
Oshoala is seen in one of Barcelona's promotional photos rocking the new strip.
Oshoala who just resumed pre-season with Barcelona’s women’s team took to social media to share a photo of herself in the new strip which has just been unveiled.
The new jersey is in traditional Barcelona colours and its design is inspired by the 1920s, considered the club’s first golden era.
The jersey is recovering its traditional vertical stripes but is including gold as a distinctive element. The ‘Blaugrana’ stripes are bordered on each side by gold strips, which evoke the design of the Club crest that the team wore on their shirts throughout the 1920s.
Another outstanding feature of the new design is the round neck collar that also has a gold-coloured rim, while the Catalan ‘Senyera’ flag appears on the back, just underneath. The full kit also includes blue shorts, with a vertical maroon stripe on the side, which also has a gold rim, and horizontally striped socks that imitate the shirt design.
Oshoala is heading into her third season with Barcelona Femeni and her second full season with the Spanish club.
In her second season at Barcelona, the 25-year-old helped the club to the league title after they were declared champions following the suspension of the league due to the coronavirus pandemic.
