While Hildah Magaia scored two goals to guide the Banyana Banyana to their first-ever WAFCON title, Chebbak was named the Player of the Tournament for consistently surprising everyone with her outstanding performances during the tournament.
While congratulating Ajibade, NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi said: “We rejoice with Rahseedat Ajibade for her emergence as joint top-scorer of the tournament and we implore her to continue to show even more prolificity and commitment in the jerseys of club and country. Her three goals surely helped the Super Falcons to win a World Cup ticket. Our team would certainly have been in the Final if not for the incident that led to her expulsion in the semi-final match against the host nation.
“She probably would have won the award outright if she finished the game and played one more match.”
