    Is Caf not shooting themselves on the leg by regionalizing qualifications and most times pitching west African teams that are the power houses in African football against each other. Pinnick and co West African Football federation president should tell caf the implications that what west African teams have done over the years at Fifa organised tournaments have given African teams more slots in variouse cadres of Fifa organised tournaments and that this trend will definitely undo this hard work because of CAF myopisim

    What was CAF thinking!
    So only one out of Nigeria, Ghana and Ivory Coast will play in African Women cup of Nations Morocco 2022 which doubles as world cup qualifying tournament!
    I still don’t understand the rationale behind scheming their best women teams out of the world cup because on a good day, both 3 teams can easily qualify from Africa.
    I pray the Super Falcons doesn’t fall victim just as they were knocked out of Olympics qualification by Ivory Coast.
