The organizers of the award, French Football, unveiled the list of nominees in a tweet on their official account on the evening of September 6. Among the 30 individuals on the shortlist is the Nigerian star.
Oshoala will be aiming to outshine 29 other contenders, which include Women’s World Cup champion Aitana Bonmati, in her quest for the coveted award.
