There’s only one Nigerian (Oshoala), there are three Cameroonians (Njoya, Awona and Kith), three South Africans (Kgatlana, Jane and Seoposenwe), one Moroccan (Nakkach), one Namibian (Coleman) and one Algerian (Koui) on the list.
Two African attackers in Spain stood head and shoulders above the rest in December, as Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala worked her way back to the top and South Africa’s Thembi Kgatlana also enjoyed a superb month.
However, there is a strong focus on France in the second half of this month’s African Women’s Power Rankings, with several African stars featuring strongly in the French Feminine Division 1.
The Chawinga sisters and Barbra Banda are absent from our Power Rankings as China is in the off season, but are likely to reappear in our top 10 when the Women’s Super League returns.
Likewise, keep an eye on Ode Fulutudilu, who recently signed for Scottish champions Glasgow City after becoming a champion herself with Åland United in Finland.
