The Africans are in the race to bag a reward for their impressive displays for Logrono and Barcelona

Logrono's Jade Boho and Barcelona's Asisat Oshoala have been nominated for the Liga Iberdrola Player of the Week 24.

The Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria international were nominated alongside Yiyi of Real Betis, whose brace inspired her side to a 3-0 win over Albacete.

Equatorial Guinea's Boho scored her third goal in four consecutive games - each against Malaga, Athletic Club and Madrid.

The 32-year-old's injury-time effort in Saturday's 2-1 against Madrid helped Logrono off the relegation zone and will be hoping to claim the prize.

On the other hand, Oshoala's opener inspired  Barcelona to a 2-0 win at leaders Atletico Madrid in front of a world club record of 70, 739 spectators in Madrid.

The three-time African Women's Player of the Year has now scored five goals in five appearances for the Catalans since arriving in Spain in February.
