Oliseh to host Glo/CAF Awards

Oliseh to host Glo/CAF Awards Nigeria Super Eagles

Posted: 26 December 2013 Time: 09:13 am

Sunday Oliseh will anchor the Glo/CAF Awards alongside South Africa's Carol Tshabalala on January 9, 2014.

The former Super Eagles captain held sway in Nigeria's defensive midfield for nearly a decade, and played for notable clubs like Ajax Amsterdam, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Vfl Bochum before retiring from football in 2006.

Oliseh, who won 64 international caps, is mostly remembered for scoring the winning goal in the group stage match against Spain in the 1998 World Cup, as Nigeria prevailed 3–2. He is now a football pundit with SuperSport.

Tshabalala on the other hand, is an award-winning South African sports TV and radio presenter, MC and boxing ring announcer.

In 2011, she hosted the coveted Fifa Ballon D'or awards ceremony in Zurich with CNN anchor, Pedro Pinto.

Oliseh and Tshabalala are expected to add to the glitz and glamour of the 2013 Glo/CAF Awards Gala night at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Lagos.

So it would be fair to have anchor who is also from Nigeria. Someone who would add glamour to the show and talk good about us while we scoop the awards.

Vincent Enyeama should win African Player Of The Year...He has been more consistent at club level than Mikel n even won player of the months of October n November in French League - not an easy feat for a goal-keeper, moreover its been ages a goal-keeper last won the award.

What has Yaya Toure done to deserve to be crown Africa footballer of the year?

@jossy, Y Toure is a holding midfielder who scores week in week out for Man City.
I am afraid they might base the decision to give him the award on that fact.

Seeing a Nigerian win the award would be a wonderful new year gift to the entire country. I wish the Nigerian nominees all the luck they need, but I must admit it would take a lot to edge out Y Toure. Compliments of the season.

1. Nigerian's coach of the year......... Manu Garba (i could have given it to keshi, but manu really got technics, he knows how to handle his boys, more as a father, his team showed d best display ever in history in naija soccer, always hungry for goals. )

2.super eagles player of the year.... Vincent Enyeama.....he has really hustled himself to the top, really deserves more award.

3.. Enyimba.
4.Best goal keeper,... Vincent Enyeama (again)
5. Nigerias young player of the year.... i would give it to Awoniyi, this lad really gave it all, even when i personally almost lost hope when success got injured, he wasnt selfish, very humble.

6 . super eagles best player based in africa ... hmm honestly cant pick any from ur options, i'd rather give it to an u-17 player...which would be kelechi Iheanacho, but if u insist i choose one from ur options, i go for azubuike, cuz the guy really surprised many even though he makes lil mistake sometimes.

7. Defender of the year.... i will choose godfrey oboabona, he has been very good, saved us alot in ethiopia, covered azubuikes lapses, even when nesta was injured, he was a one man army.
8.captain of the year......enyeama (ozokwa)
9. Sports gov of the year...... liyel imoke, the man really helped our u17 and SE alot, even visited in dubai, he has been a great help.
10. Star team of e year..... u17 all d way..... i really hope thisnteam stays together, they r just toooooooooo gooooooood, am so obsessed with the team.

Sorry for any typo, wrote this with my phone

In all fairness, Vincent Enyeama deserves to win African Footballer of the Year. Yaya may have some skills, but he lacks the humility and fear of God that Enyeama consistently projects. Wasn't Yaya shamed in SA when he arrogantly christined the SE 'Chickens'? But then our young players caged him and aging Drogba, as they strutted about like Dangote's overloaded trucks. An intelligent footballer shouldn't be so cocky. We're talking of someone being a role model for young footballers. Yaya: red card.

@Game 14:

1. STEPHEN KESHI (It has been a while we won Nations Cup, and world cup where we had qualification for World Cup in our hands all the way...I am not a personal fan of his though . MANU GARBA was gifted with exceptional players).

2. EMMANUEL EMENIKE (coming to our rescue at critical games. Almost singlehandedly qualified us in our away game against Ethiopia out of nothing, u know the rest).

3. KANO PILLARS

4. VINCENT ENYEAMA (DELE was good no doubt but he had a great team ahead of him, greater than what Enyeama had in the Eagles).

5. KELECHI IHEANACHO

6. SUNDAY MBA (May not have been good lately but we can't take away anything from his crucial cup winning goals)

7. EFE AMBROSE (This is my hardest pick because GODFREY OBOABONA brings a lot of maturity to the mid defence so much you won't know he was based in Nigeria few months ago. I like what EFE AMBROSE brings to the attack, I wonder why people criticise him when hi coach still plays him)

8. MUSA MOHAMMED all the way (I have never believed in a goalkeeping captain, they can't add much to the team except when they are under attack...I think it is a waste).

9. NO IDEA ( I have not been following governors in sports this year)

10. U-17 (and this is not just about Iheanacho; Nwakali, Yahaya, Abubakar in defence, Awoniyi...the team is just too blessed!)

I would like to see a Nigerian win the award this year but CAF is very corrupt. It might be a repeat of what happened to Okocha.

All the past years CAF always narrowed the list down to 3 players. This year, a year Nigerians performed very well, they have left the list of nominees at 10. This reduces the chances of the Nigerians because voters will have more options and our votes will be spread amongst our players.

Because of this I believe Yaya will win it even though he does not deserve it this year. Yaya did not have a better year than our players. We can only pray I am wrong. I do not trust CAF at all.
