    I still dont understand how Chiamaka became the best GK without making the CAF XI or how Andile Dlamini who was Best GK in both the AWCON and Women’s Champions league made the CAF XI but didnt win the best GK award.

    And how the Female Coach of the year was Desiree Ellis but the national team of the year is the SF of Nigeria. So on what basis did Desiree Ellis become the coach of the year….?

    These awards sometimes can be confusingly illogical.

      Beats me @DR Drey.
      CAF in character; just giving out awards based on emotions ,placing logic in the corner.

      The Men’s 11 is even more confusing, with an Onana over a Bono when the latter won the best keeper in the night. And somehow Chancel Mbemba made the list.

        Yea…an African XI for the year under review without a Yassine Bono sounds so out of place. The dude went to the last world cup on the back of consecutive GK of the season accolades in the Spanish Liga.

        And for God’s sake, we all know the Banyanas of South Africa were the female team of the year. The won their first AWCON and produced quite a pulsating performance at the World cup too.

        It doesn’t make any sense the their coach was coach of the year and the falcons were team of the year….Its either CAF acknowledges that Ellis/Banyana won those categories or Waldrum/Super Falcons did.

        • You are on point Dr. Drey. But let us just enjoy the moment. We have also being at the receiving end before.

        • Chiemeka Nwaogwugwu 6 months ago

          Yes, but of Africa’s WWC representatives, the Super Falcons were the only ones who didn’t lose a match outright (the penalty shootout loss to England was technically a draw) while Banyana Banyana lost 2 games. And at the World Cup, Chiamaka Nnadozie was voted the best goalkeeper of the group stages by FIFA’s TSG (even though England’s Mary Earps won the best goalkeeper of the tournament). That played a part in the awards. But Bounou should have been awarded the best male goalkeeper. Sometimes CAF makes me cringe at some of their decisions.

    CAF would never fail to amuse me but I am just glad ,this time around it favoured us.

  • But I am just happy that Oshimen and Osoala deserved their awards.
