Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala crowned an outstanding performance for Barcelona Femini in their opening group game of the UEFA Women's Champions League with a bicycle kick goal.
The Nigerian forward sealed victory as the Spanish giants thumped Benfica Women 5-0 on Tuesday evening at the Estadi Johan Cruyff.
It was her first goal in the competition's group stage this season as the Catalans got off to a bright start.
In a video that has since gone viral on social media, Oshoala met a lovely cross from Caroline Graham Hansen with a lovely acrobatic kick.
Meanwhile, in an explosive start to the game, Alexia Putellas opened the scoring after just 15 minutes before adding her second six minutes to half-time.
Aitana Bonmati extended the advantage right at the stroke of half-time as Barcelona Femini cruised to a commanding lead before the break.
After the break, Bonmati netted her second of the game before Oshoala put the icing on the cake with her spectacular strike, as reported by the BBC.
Barcelona Femini sits at the top of Group A after the first round of games.

Oshoala spotted speaking fluent Spanish
Sports Brief also reported that Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala spoke Spanish with ease during Barcelona Femini's victory parade.
The Barcelona Femini attacker has been in Spain since 2019, playing a pivotal role in the success of the Spanish giants.
However, not many Nigerian football fans believed she was as good on the pitch as she is with her linguistic skills.
