Anonma edges Ihezuo for Africa award



Equatorial Guinea striker, Genoveva Anonma on Thursday at the 2012 Glo Caf Awards in Accra, Ghana beat Nigeria's prolific striker, Chinwendu Ihezuo for the glamorous 2012 Women's Footballer of the Year.

The Equatorial Guinean sharpshooter was considered for the coveted award ahead of Ihezuo and South Africa's Banyana Banyana forward, Portia Modise for her heroine effort in her side's victory at the 8th African Women's Championship in Equatorial Guinea.

Anonma, who stirred gender row after her side's debut as African champions in 2008, succeeds Nigeria's lethal finisher, Perpetua Nkwocha.

The Sunnana SK striker, who has won the title for a record four times, was left out of the award this time round.

Ihezuo came strongly to winning the award following her brilliant performance at the 2012 Fifa Under17 Women's World Cup in Azerbaijan.

The Pelican Stars goal-poacher's six goals at the football showpiece helped her side, Flamingoes to a quarterfinal finish before suffering a defeat to France on penalties.

However, her goalscoring prowess did not go unnoticed as her six goals and two assists at the tournament fetched her a silver boot in the top scorers' race leaving the bronze boot to teammate, Halimat Ayinde.
