Last month the Confederation of African Football published the nominees of the Glo CAF Awards for 2017.
The striker for Ghana Black Queens, Elizabeth Addo has expressed her profound disappointment at the inability of the Ghana Football Association to assist her and other nominees to attend the Glo CAF Awards.
Ghana’s Elizabeth Addo who plays for Kvarnsvedensik was nominated for the best African Women’s Player award together with Asisat OSHOALA of Nigeria & Arsenal Ladies , Gabrille Aboude Oguene of Cameroon and Rossiyanka, Janie Van Wyk of South Africa and JVW and Raissa Feudjio Tchuanyo of Cameroon and Aland United.
The prestigious women’s award was handed to Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala.
She spoke on Boss FM’s programme Boss Sports 2 on Thursday. She explained that no official communication was made with her neither from the offices of CAF nor that of GFA. Her most disappointment is that she only learnt to know her nomination on a radio station in Accra.
Elizabeth emphasised that even if she could not win the ultimate prize, it was worth attending the ceremony which would also serve as a big motivation for her and the other female players.
Addo has been a full international for Ghana since 2007 and was main lady when the Black Queens placed 3rd in the 2016 African Women’s Nations Cup hosted by Cameroon.
Other Ghanaian young talents like Sandra Owusu- Ansah who plays for Supreme ladies as well as Eric Ayiah, captain of Ghana’s U-17 team, Black Starlets could also could not attend the awards ceremony under similar circumstances. Both were nominated for the Young Player of the year which was won by Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi.
