    This is what happens when you give power to a South African business man to rule African football. Next time una for no name any Nigerian player at shortlist. Let’s get ready to see South Africa sweep majority of the awards even if they don’t win the tournament. On a personal note they have a decent coach but their top 4 players on the list are not better than Oshoala, Rasheedat,Monday and high flying Chiamaka Nnadozie who won young keeper award in France with Paris FC. Nepotism hurting African football from the days of Hayatou till date. People like Pinnick is partly to blame instead of improving your aspirations to CAF presidency you want to continue Bossing NFF and FIFA Exco. Our players too needs to keep bride and use performances to slap all these teams and their so called players.

      The South Africans have been awarding themselves all the awards of the African women football in all the tournaments for a long time ago.
      They’re are not ashamed of themselves that in the last tournament they were boasting that even though they never won the trophy they did not lose to any team
      Can you see that the awards list is filled with their female players.
      Even the Memolodi ladies are not better than the female teams I watched their video playing at the Enugu Rangers practicing pitch in Enugu.
      When will Africa be transparent at doing things?

  • Really? Four South Africans in the final ten for the player of the year? I think the corruption in CAF has taken another turn.

    You people seem to overlook what happened yesterday between South Africa v Tunisia. There was a late penalty, clear contact, VAR certain alerted offence, but what happened, the South African referee from Burundi, ruled it out because corruption. Super Falcons wi play thirteen women on Monday. To the Glory of God, Nigeria will laugh last. God bless Super Falcons, God Bless. Nigeria.

      YouTubers have made this complains but this championship is designed for South Africa Morocco so it’s normal to see this things. Nigeria will have to be on fire to overcome these antics against a good Moroccans side that plays swift precise football to come out unscathed. Any lack of concentration or small foul will amount to several calls so they have to be very much aware and not give that opportunity, and on the other side chances must be taken so that we don’t have to go into much drama with the less experienced Moroccans.

      That was a CLEAR PENALTY…PUNISHED MYSELF TO WATCH THE MATCH TO THE END ONLY for the referee to mess things up. What a shame? Ojoro Motsepe
