Nigerians frustrated over CAF awards snub

Nigerians were clearly not too pleased by the country’s poor showing at Thursday’s Aiteo/CAF Awards.

Asisat Oshoala and Junior Ajayi were the only two recognised from the West African nation.

Instead, the country led the way in terms of entertainment and not the main business of the day.

Victor Moses was dropped from the final three shortlist for the Player of the Year award, won by ex-Chelsea teammate, Mohamed Salah.

While the Super Falcons and Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr lost in the Women’s Team and Coach of the Year categories respectively.

Some angry Nigerians, including prominent journalists, stormed Twitter afterward to vent their frustration.
