AFCON Asisat Oshoala : Nigerian star furious with CAF for women’s AFCON

Asisat Oshoala is not really happy if the CAF has to cancel the women’s AFCON. The star of women’s football in Nigeria gets straight to the point and makes it clear.

It is not good for women’s football in Africa. When you have great deal of difficulty finding a host nation for a continental tournament every two years. We cannot be at that level in 2020. That’s too bad. The CAF must return to the starting bases in order to make of women’s football one of its main priorities. They need to prioritize the marketing of women’s football,” indicated Barcelona player to BBC.

Oshoala has reacted via several tweets against this decision of the African body. “If you postpone it for 2021, that is good! But not to completely cancel it. We need an appropriate explanation. We cannot take five steps forward and ten steps back. So we also need more support from the CAF, not just from our national federations. The cancellation won’t help because teams will be facing two or three years without competition before 2023 Women’s World Cup.” She added.
