Super Falcons striker Rasheedat Ajibade is on verge of winning her first club trophy after her Atletico Madrid Femenino qualified for the final of Spanish Supercopa.
Atletico defeated favorites FC Barcelona Femení in the semifinal on Wednesday.
The Madrid side secured the famous win via penalty shoot out after the sides played out a 1-1 draw in the regulation and extra time.
Merel van Dongen put Atletico in front in the 59th minutes, but Alexia Putellas equalised for Barcelona with just a minute into the 90s.
Defending champions Barcelona managed to convert just one of the spot kicks attempted, while Atletico scored three to seal their place in the final.
Ajibade did not feature in the game although she was named as a sub, meanwhile, Oshoala was a second half substitute.
The new signing responded to Atletico Madrid’s win via social media, expressing delight to reach final and also spared some praise for her teammates.
“Into the final, Great job ladies,” she wrote on Twitter.
Into the final!!!

¡¡¡Hacia la final !!!
