Asisat Oshoala of the Super Falcons is the first Nigerian and the first African to win the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
The 26-year-old came off the bench in the 71st minute as Chelsea won the final 4-0 on Sunday.
Melanie Leupolz redirected the ball into her own nett in the first minute, giving Lluis Cortes’ women the lead.
In the first half, Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati, and Caroline Graham Hansen all scored.
Oshoala scored a fifth goal in the closing minutes, but it was ruled out for offside.
Barcelona has previously lost the 2019 final to Lyon.
