Falcons’ Star, Oshoala, Helps Liverpool to Victory  


Asisat Oshoala scored her first goal in English football to help defending Women’s Super League One champions Liverpool overcome Birmingham City.

The Nigeria striker Oshoala was lively before meeting a Gemma Bonner cross to volley home just before the break.

Oshoala cut the ball back for Fara Williams to make it 2-0 before Aoife Mannion gave Birmingham late hope.

Liverpool’s first win of 2015 was overshadowed as Kate Longhurst went off on a stretcher with concussion.

The forward received lengthy treatment on the pitch following a clash of heads with Remi Allen.

Defeat for Birmingham leaves them winless in the league, although they have already ended Liverpool’s FA Cup hopes with a 3-1 fifth-round win at Damson Park, reports the BBC.

Speaking after the game, Oshoala said: “I feel very happy and excited about the goal and the victory for the team.

“It’s very nice for me hearing them singing my name. It’s a crazy atmosphere. I have never seen supporters like this and I have been playing football for quite a long time now. The supporters here are awesome, they are great people.

“It’s been a difficult start to the season but I believed we would bounce back. We showed the spirit here is very high, and we are really giving everything.”
