Nekane Diez: On the scoresheet in every season at Athletic

With her strike against Villarreal, Nekane has scored at least one goal for Athletic for 16 seasons in a row

Nov 28, 2022

Nekane Díez got the final goal in Athletic Club Women's 1-6 victory over Villarreal CF on Saturday evening.

After coming off the bench, and with just two minutes on the pitch, the striker opened her account for this season, something which she has done every year since making her debut in 2007. That's 16 consecutive campaigns scoring for Athletic Club.

The striker has not lost her goalscoring instinct and with this effort she extends her record for scoring in consecutive seasons.

  • 16 seasons - Nekane Diez
  • 14 seasons - Eli Ibarra
  • 14 seasons - Irune Murua
  • 11 seasons - Erika Vazquez* 

With 161 Athletic goals in total, Nekane is the Club's second top scorer, only beaten by Erika Vázquez (264).

Nekane's goal tally per campaign:

  • 2007/08: 5 goals. 
  • 2008/09: 8 goals. 
  • 2009/10: 16 goals. 
  • 2010/11: 25 goals.  
  • 2011/12: 15 goals. . 
  • 2012/13: 12 goals. 
  • 2013/14: 16 goals.  
  • 2014/15: 17 goals.  
  • 2015/16: 6 goals.  
  • 2016/17: 12 goals.  
  • 2017/18: 13 goals.  
  • 2018/19: 11 goals. 
  • 2019/20: 1 goals.  
  • 2020/21: 1 goals. 
  • 2021/22: 1 goals. 
  • 2022/23: 1 goals.

*Erika Vázquez also scored goals in all the seasons she played for Athletic - 17 in total. However, they were not consecutive, as in the 2010/11 campaign she played for RCD Espanyol.
