Nigerian star forward Asisat Oshoala scored on her debut appearance for Barcelona Women as they thrashed Rayo Vallecano 4-0 at the Ciudad Deportiva Rayo Vallecano Campo on Sunday, February 10.

Oshoala, who joined Barcelona on loan last month from Chinese side Dalian Quanjian replaced Alexia Putellas in the 62nd minute and scored just 60 seconds later as she chanced upon a pass from Kheira Hamraoui before beating Rayo Vallecano's goalkeeper.

The Nigerian scored the fourth goal of the game as they controlled in all the departments and did not allow their host any room to operate.

The performance saw Barcelona Women move three points behind the leaders Atlético Madrid at the top of the log.

The former FC Robo star and three-time African Women's Footballer of the Year Award winner is expected to feature again for Barcelona in their game against visiting Sporting de Huelva on Wednesday, February 13.
