Asisat Oshoala is undoubtedly the biggest star of Womens football in Africa.

The 27-year-old Super Falcons star continues to set the pace in womens football continentally, having become the first African woman and Nigerian to win the UEFA Champions League alongside her incredible goalscoring achievements.

The Barcelona star has now taken to her Twitter page to announce the launch of her self-named football academy in a collaboration between global sports brand Nike - for which she is an ambassador as well as global multi-dimensional women’s fund Women Win.

"I am proud to announce the launch of the Asisat Oshoala Academy in partnership with Nike football and Women Win.

The football academy is an initiative that will build upon my mission of providing access to sports and education for young girls in our community" Oshoala tweeted.

Oshoala's latest announcement spells a lot of positives for young talents and prospects in Nigerian football with her newest project.

Especially at the grassroots from which she emerged before she became a global star.

Oshoala is currently with the Nigeria National team for the 2022 Womens Africa Cup Of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco and will be lead the attack when the glorious Falcons play their opening match of Group C against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana in the same city on Monday, 4th July.
