The award ceremony is scheduled for December 20.
The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has released the nominees for the rest of the categories for this year’s GLO-CAF Awards scheduled for December 20 in Accra, Ghana.
A few days after announcing the five shortlisted nominees for the 2012 CAF Player of the Year and the three players vying for the 2012 CAF Player of the Year (Based in Africa), the Confederation released the list of the remaining awards contenders.
In the National Team of the Year category, reigning African champions Zambia have been nominated along with the team the Chipolopolo beat in 2012 African Cup Of Nations final, Ivory Coast. The 2013 AFCON debutants, Cape Verde, are also in the running as is Central African Republic.
In the Women’s National Team of the Year, recently crowned African Women’s Champions, Equatorial Guinea will fight it out with Ghana’s U-17 side that finished third in this year’s FIFA World Cup, and Nigeria’s Super Falcons for the honours.
The chance of the Super Falcons winning the award is very slim as the team had its worst outing ever at the Africa women Championship where it came fourth.
Egypt’s Mohamed Salah; Senegalese young striker, Pape Moussa Konate; and Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama have been nominated for the Most Promising Talent.
CAF will announce the top three nominees for each category after the voting by CAF relevant Standing Committees, namely the Media, Technical, and Football committees.
