“My Dad Is Definitely Not Happy”: Nigeria Striker “Asisat Oshoala” Opens Up on Goal Celebration Against Australia

  • Asisat Oshoala pulled off her shirt after netting Nigeria’s decisive goal against Australia at the FIFA Women’s World Cup
  • The history-making effort saw her become the first African to score at three different World Cups
  • Born into a devout Muslim family, the Nigerian international says her father would not be proud of her celebration

Nigerian international Asisat Oshoala disclosed that her father would not be impressed about her wild celebrations after scoring against Australia.

The Barcelona Femini striker came off the bench to score what was eventually the decisive goal as the Super Falcons won the tie 3-2.

Australia’s Emily van Egmond had opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time before Uchenna Kanu equalised with about the last kick of the opening exchanges.

The Matildas pulled one back in the closing minutes, but that strike came too little late as the Super Falcons claimed a famous 3-2 victory.

However, Oshoala’s goal has continued to generate reactions after the striker pulled off her shirt while celebrating her goal.

She has, however, stated that her dad would not be proud of such a wild celebration. She wrote:

My dad is definitely not happy with my choice of celebration, but then again, Life is a collection of MOMENTS. #Alhamdulilah #Grateful #Moments.”
