Oluehi, Ebi named in 2018 AWCON Best XI… Oshoala, Ordega are Subs

Nigeria’s Tochukwu Oluehi was voted the best goal keeper at the 2018 CAF Women’s Africa Cup of Nations and is one of only two Nigerians that made the tournament’s Best XI list.

The Super Falcons retained the title following a enthralling 4-3 penalty shoot out against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana after a goalless scoreline in regulation and extra-time.

 


However Oluehi and Super Falcons captain Onome Ebi were the only Nigerians named in the Best XI the competition’s Technical Study group.

 

The Best XI were selected to start in a 4-3-3 formation, and Ebi was named alongside Banyana captain Janine Van Wyk and her teammate Lebohang Ramalepe, with Cameroon’s Claudine Tcheno completing the back four.

 

Meanwhile, Asisat Oshoala, who scored three goals in the tournament was picked as a substitute, whilst Mali’s Bassira Toure, who managed only two goals for Les Aiglonnes was named as one of three attackers.

 

Francisca Ordega was also named as a substitute in the list of 17 outstanding players at the tournament.

    How does a player whom had two goals make team Africa while a player with three goals is put on the substitute.
    CAF needs to be recognised, too many francophone members at the top and it seems they always vote against the anglophone countries especially Nigeria in all aspects, e.g. why didn’t “JJ okocha ” didn’t win Africa’s best ??
