The 2015 BBC Player of the Year winner, said she was moved by the club’s traumatic experience had due to some technical faults to the vehicles on the road to execute their women’s top-flight matches.

“It’s my own little way of appreciating the team and it saddens me when I see them struggling to go for matches because they don’t have a team bus,” Oshoala told

“I’m glad I was able to make them smile as it was a surprise. I’m happy this ease their road troubles and help their mobility.

“As for Osahon, he deserves it. He’s a really good man who doesn’t joke with his players. I love them.”
