The Confederation of African Football has unveiled the preliminary nominees for the various women’s categories for the CAF Awards 2023.

Also, in the running for the CAF Woman Player of the Year award are goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie (Nigeria, Paris FC) Christy Ucheibe (Nigeria, Benfica), and Osinachi Ohale (Nigeria, Alaves/Pachuca).

Others are Rasheedat Ajibade (Nigeria, Atletico Madrid), Toni Payne (Nigeria, Sevilla) and Uchenna Kanu (Nigeria, Tigres/Racing Louisville) who are all shortlisted for the most prestigious individual award on the continent in women’s football

Three Nigerians, Deborah Abiodun (Nigeria, Pittsburg Panthers), Esther Opeyemi Ajakaye (Nigeria, Delta Queens) and Oluwatosin Demehin (Nigeria, Stade Reims) were shortlisted for the Young Player of the Year Award.

In the newly introduced Goalkeeper of the Year category, Nnadozie is among the shortlisted shot-stoppers.

Super Falcons Coach, Randy Wladrum, is among the managers pencilled for the Coach of the Year award while Nigeria is equally in the run for the national team of the year.

As stated on Wednesday, the winner of each category will be decided after votes from a voting panel with the CAF Technical Committee, media professionals from member associations, head coaches and captains of member associations and clubs involved at the group stages of the Interclub competitions.

The Awards Gala will be graced by African football’s crème de la crème on 11 December 2023 in Marrakech, Morocco.
