Ghana’s U20 women national striker Evelyn Badu has been crowned the best female inter-club female player of the year in Africa at the 2022 CAF football awards held in Rabat, Morocco.
The awards night was staged on Thursday evening, July 21, 2022.
The 19-year-old also added to her name the female Young Player of the Year on the night.
She scooped the inter-club female player award from Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Andile Dlamini and South Africa center-back Bambanani Mbanie.
In the Young Player of the Year award, she beat a contest from former teammate Doris Boaduwaa and Morocco’s Yasmine Zouhir to win the converted accolade.
She’s got bags of talent! 💫

With Hasaacas, Badu hugged the headlines in November, helping the Ghanaian club to the maiden TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League final in Egypt, where she won the Best Player of the Tournament and Golden Boot with five goals.
She helped the Sekondi-based side and powered them to the 2021 domestic quadruple where they won four titles including the WAFU Zone B championship.
Her out sanding performance earned her a contract to Norwegian Toppserien side Avaldsnes IL, on a two and-a-half year deal.
