  • Lol. 3 South Africans in the final shortlist? Obviously, Motsepe wants to hand over Women AFPOTY to his compatriot. When Hayatou assumed the CAF presidency, Cameroun had zero Afcon wins, by the time he left in 2017, Cameroun had won 4 and become a powerhouse on the continent. Motsepe is coming with his own special South Africa agenda and NFF is still sleeping on bicycle wheels, especially with the WCQ. And nah Pinnick help install am.

    Me thinks Nnadozie should get this one.

    • Dr. Drey 3 months ago

      Sorry ehn. This one is going to Thembi Kgatlana.

      No one deserves to be African women’s FOTY more than that girl.

      She’s the 1 woman riot squad that single handedly took many defences to the cleaners in the last year and half….including that of our SF on home soil
