That historic goal proved decisive as the Super Falcons made it to the round of 16 where they eventually crashed out despite a brave display against European Champions England.

However, Oshoala is now celebrating a different milestone, this time, on social media.

Oshoala has been adding awards to her trophy-filled cabinet ever since she made her debut 14 years ago.

The Super Falcon became the first African sportswomen to hit the one million mark on Instagram according to a report by your number one sports website, Pulse Sports.

She has now taken to her Instagram page to celebrate with a simple message of appreciation to her fans and followers.
