Mercy Akide was part of the recent celebration of African women’s football (FIFA/CAF conference).
Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea both made a competitive impact at this year’s women’s World Cup in Germany, and with a fantastic semi-final appearance by Nigeria at last year’s FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup, Mercy Akide has predicted that an African side will be among the top four teams at the women’s World Cup in Canada 2015.
