Former SLFA President and FIFA Council member, Isha Johansen, was seen alongside CAF President Patrice Motsepe, Nigeria’s FA President Amaju Pinnick, and CAF General Secretary Veron Mosengo-Omba at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final between England and Australia.
In a thrilling and closely contested match, Spain emerged victorious in the 2023 Women’s World Cup final, securing a hard-fought 1-0 win over England at Sydney’s Stadium Australia. The game’s sole goal was netted by Olga Carmona, who executed a precise finish from the left side.
Despite no African teams making it to the final stage, CAF President Patrice Motsepe conveyed words of encouragement to the African nations that participated in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
He urged them to draw inspiration from Morocco’s remarkable achievement of reaching the semi-finals in the men’s tournament a few months earlier.
Madam Johansen currently plays a pivotal role in revitalizing FIFA’s reputation and breaking barriers in women’s football on a global scale through her leadership.
