Asisat Oshoala is a shining example for African women’s players, according to Ajara Nchout, ahead of Tuesday’s Caf Awards in Egypt.
The Cameroon player is in the running for the African Women’s Player of the Year award but faces real competition from Nigeria’s Oshoala and South Africa’s Thembi Kgatlana.
Asisat helped Nigeria to the Women’s World Cup knockout stage for the first time in 2 decades and inspired her club, Barcelona to a runners-up spot in the Uefa Women’s Champions League last season.
Speaking ahead of the award, Ajara hailed Oshoala for her class and quality.
His words, “As my colleague, Asisat Oshoala is a great footballer and a champion,”
“She is fast, powerful, unpredictable in her game. Her goal against South Korea during the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France was a perfect illustration.
“Wherever she went, she demonstrated her talent. Whether in England, China and currently in Spain with Barcelona, do with the Nigerian team, she showed the extent of her talent.
“Asisat is a footballer who inspires respect and I learned a lot when I see her play. In football, she is an example for the African girl.”
