Asisat Oshoala paid tribute to late stepmom after scoring a brace in Barcelona 7-0 heavy win over Rayo Vallecano at the Johan Cruyff Stadium in the Spanish Primera Iberdrola fixture.

The 26-year-old Super Falcons skipper handed her seventh start of the season after coming on as a substitute in last Wednesday’s Super Cup loss to Atletico Madrid.

Oshoala was on target twice in the emphatic win, and she dedicated the two goals to her departed stepmom.

The big victory at home also saw Barcelona open a five-point lead at the top of the Spanish log with 36 points from 12 matches this term.

The Nigerian star has now found the back of the net 11 times in 12 league outings and 14 in all competitions this season for Barcelona.

Oshoala will hope to continue with her eye-catching displays when Barcelona take on Tenerife in a Spanish Iberdrola tie on January 23.
