Super Falcons and Barcelona femini striker Asisat Oshoola has praised the spirited performance of Peter Olayinka after his Czech side, Slavia Prague left Camp Nou with a point following a goalless draw against the Spanish champions in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Super Eagles forward, who played the entire duration of the game, was a handful for the Blaugrana defenders as his physical presence made life difficult for the likes Gerrard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Nelson Semedo, and Jordi Alba on the night.
The 23-year old covered a distance of 11.31 kilometers and that was only bettered by two Barcelona players, Frenkie de Jong (12.11km) and Vidal (11.57km).
However, a member of the Barcelona feminine squad Oshoola took to her official Twitter handle to commend the energetic display of the former KAA Gent of Belgium player.
“@AsisatOshoala: Peter no Dey tire #BARSLP”, her tweet reads.
Recall that Olayinka is one of the three players put on standby by Super Eagles chief coach Gernot Rohr in the 23-man squad for Nigeria’s 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.
