Hassacas Ladies’ star Evelyn Badu was chosen as the group stage best player in the ongoing TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League, Egypt 2021.
The 19 years old midfielder scored four goals to top the scorers’ chart to the moment and has also won the “Woman of the Match” award twice, as she was voted by the tournament’s Technical Study Group (TSG) as the best in the mini-league stage.
Born on 11 September 2002, Badu was part of the Ghana squad that competed in the 2018 U-20 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. She made her international senior debut with the Black Queens during the 2020 Olympics qualifiers.
But she exploded to stardom in Cairo when scored a brace against Malabo Kings in the opening game, and repeated the feat against AS Mande, winning the “Woman of the Match” award in both games.
“I’m really grateful to win this award two times in a row and to be the top scorer. This only makes me want to do more,” Evelyn told CAFOnline.com.
“I thank god for this opportunity to play in the CAF Women’s Champions League. It was a dream that came true and now I just want to achieve more,” she added.
Badu revealed that her wish to lift the CAF Women’s Champions League trophy and scoring goals will just help her side to do so.
“I hope Hasaacas Ladies lift the trophy because as a team, whenever there is a trophy at stake, we don’t leave it behind. We want to make history in this particular tournament,” she concluded.
