Super Falcons By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 19/07/2019

Brazilian forward Cristiane beat Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala to win 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Goal of the tournament in France. 

The 24-year-old Barcelona star scored Nigeria's second goal in the 2-0 group stage win over South Korea after former Arsenal and Liverpool forward raced half the length of the field, dribbled past a defender, rounded the keeper and scored from a tight angle.

Oshoala was one of the ten selected goals, but Brazil's Cristiane brilliant header against Australia was eventually chosen as the Hyundai Goal of the Tournament after 300,000 fans took part in an online vote on FIFA.com.
