The award was conferred on Asisat in December by the Confederation of African Football (CAF). She has won the award a record six times.

She said the presentation was in recognition of the support of the first couple towards her successful outing at the tourney.

”I love to appreciate the President and the First Lady for allowing me to present their work to them. We had a couple of issues during the World Cup tournament.

“They came in to help us, especially after the tournament. She stretched a supportive hand towards the girls.

”If something good is coming out of that team, I think it’s only right for her to be aware and also shown this thing and so she knows that we really do appreciate that support,” she said.

On the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) coming up in January 2024, Asisat said she did not expect anything from the tournaments other than total victory for the Eagles.

“Nothing, nothing to expect other than Super Eagles winning every game. We’re going for Gold. We have this calibre of superstars, and it’s about football.

“I feel like the guys are actually mentally ready, and I feel like they’re going to have a good outcome,” she said. The 34th edition of the biggest sports event on African soil will take place from Jan. 13 to Feb. 11, 2024, in Abidjan.

Asisat, widely regarded as one of the greatest African female footballers of all time and one of the best in the world, is among the most celebrated African female footballers ever.
