Former National team goalkeeper and women’s football committee deputy chairwoman Kadan Ali Hassan added that there were high hopes that the country’s women’s national football team will soon be available for international competitions, praising the FDF president for the constructive idea of the revival of women’s involvement.

The FDF president Souleiman Hassan Waberi for his part said that he believed that women were major human resources for the promotion of football in his country and for that reason his federation was prioritising the development of women’s football in the country.
