- Asisat Oshoala has stated that goalkeepers naturally drink water after conceding a goal because they are humans

- Goalkeepers are famous for taking to their water bottle moments after conceding a goal
Nigerian international, Asisat Oshoala has disclosed why professional goalkeepers take a sip from their bottled-water right after conceding a goal.
It is a common sight in football as goalkeepers are seen tucking a bottle of water inside or around the goalpost - and as soon as they concede, they find their way to take a sip.
Football lovers can attest to the fact that once a goal is scored, television camera's first zoom-in is on the goal scorer as he celebrates with his teammates and then the second is usually flashed on the goalkeeper who just conceded.

In that shot, there’s a good chance the goalie is pulling on his water bottle and having a drink. And this has prompted a question on Twitter which attracted the response of the Barcelona Femeni striker.
Following a tweet by popular commentator Japhet Omojuwa who queried why goalkeepers drink after conceding, Asisat Oshoala delivered an epic response saying it is a ‘law of nature.
“It’s a law, as human being...if you chop, you must drink.”
'Chop' in the Nigerian contest here actually mean ‘eat or concede’.
Oshoala was named among the top 30 inspiring women in celebration of the just recent International Women's Day.
The 26-year-old Super Falcons attacker joined the Catalan club in 2019 and has been an incredible performer for them since then.
Stats show that she has scored a staggering 33 goals in 32 appearances and helped them win the league title last campaign.
As if that was not enough, she also inspired them to the final of the women's UEFA Champions League but lost to eventual winners Lyon who ran off with a 4-1 victory.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Rasheedat Ajibade was the hero on Wednesday evening, April 21, for her Spanish club Atletico de Madrid scoring the winner in their match against Real Sociedad.
The encounter against Real Sociedad was in the Copa Dela Reina and Atletico Madrid had to wait until the death before the Nigerian star scored the winner for them.
Since joining Atletico Madrid from Avaldsnes, Rasheedat Ajibade has been impressive for the Spanish club in all competitions.
