    Good luck dearies, The Lord is your strength. God bless Nigeria.

  • Shame on CAF really. They want the COSAFA teams to take up most of the slots for the world cup. Imagine pitting the first ranked team in Africa against the fourth ranked team. Why did they not pair south Africa with Cameroon. How will three countries who are amongst the Top five in Africa be paired up against one another so that just one qualifies for the female nation’s cup. These three nations have been to the world cup before. Imagine a Djibouti qualifying for the next stage of the qualifiers because their opponents withdrew whilst either a Nigeria or Ghana is eliminated. Can Djibouti, Rwanda or some of these other nations stand the strength of Nigeria or Ghana. This is daylight robbery on West Africa that has some of the strongest female teams in Africa. I’m sure CAF has arranged it to want south Africa, Cameroon, Zambia and either Nigeria, Ghana or cote D’Ivoire to qualify for the world cup proper with these weak draws they did all in the name of using zones.

    Now when FIFA reduces Africa’s slot we will begin to complain .

    Shame on CAF…..

    • The new CAF President, South African Motsepe definitely has an agenda and their satellite broadcast giant, DSTv are actively on it. Stupidly, selfish Pinnick helped push Motsepe to power in exchange for his election to FIFA board.

        I don’t trust Motsepe. There is some hidden agenda to push Southern African football up. How come we now have regional qualifiers for age grade competitions. Why can’t the best of the best just slug it out across the continent and have the best represent the continent. Looking back you will realize that Southern African countries have not done well in age grade competitions in comparison to West or North Africans..
