Safa president Molefi Oliphant has congratulated Noko Matlou and promised that the African Woman Footballer of the Year would get rewarded for her achievements.

Oliphant, who is also a patron of women's football, said the amount would have to be considered by the association. But he emphasised that "as a token of our appreciation for her courage, she would receive an incentive".

Oliphant also indicated that there would be a ceremony to honour Matlou.

"I would like to congratulate her. For the first time in our football history we have a winner [at the CAF annual awards], he said.

"She has made all of us proud and has shown we can compete against the best, and win.

"What she has done is send a message to all the girls and women that they too can do it."

Oliphant said that when Matlou's name was announced, he was surprised because he had seen one of the finalists, Equatorial Guinea's Geneveva Anonma playing and felt she was a strong contender for the award.

"She plays for the South African team Sundowns Ladies and I know she is very dangerous - she made a worthy foe for Noko."
