Banyana Banyana coach Vera Pauw took to twitter last night congratulating the Cameroon national women’s soccer team and its player for receiving awards at the 2015 Glo-CAF Awards held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, Nigeria.

The West African’s were named the African Women’s team of the year, while their forward Gaelle Enganamoiut, who plays for Swedish side FC Rosengard was named the African Women’s Player of the Year.

Pauw’s Banyana were also in the running for the team of the year award, only to be beaten by the West African side. But the Banyana mentor revealed an element of sportsmanship as she congratulated the country and the player for the awards.

“Congrats, deserved #Cameroon! Women’s player of year Gaelle Enganamouit (Cameroon) & women’s National team (Cameroon).   #GloCAFAwards2015,” Pauw tweeted.

With Pauw currently back at her home country Holland, the Banyana coach is expected to be back in the country this weekend, as the team will assemble for camp on Monday to prepare for the up-coming Rio Olympics.
