By Sulaiman Alao: Super Falcons and Dalian Quanjian of China star forward, Asisat Oshoala, has called on parents to give their girl children a chance to pursue their passion in sports alongside education.
“I want to appeal to all our parents out there to give their girl children the chance to explore their passion in sports even as they endeavor to give them good education. There is need to change the notion that a girl’s place is in the kitchen.
“Girls need to be encouraged to go into sports even as they go to school. Education and sports is a win-win combination for every girl child. Oshoala is God’s gift to Nigeria and the world at large. She is a role model for millions of girls around the world.
Oshoala’s Dalian Quanjian have been crowned champions of the 2017 Chinese Women’s Super League with Oshoala emerging the league highest goalscorer with 18 goals.
