The Association of Support to African Women (ASAMA), a volunteer organization created in Equatorial Guinea two years ago and based in the city of Bata, recently held the Second Annual Women’s Marathon. This Saturday, October 27, the second annual women’s marathon of the Association of Support to African Women (ASAMA) was held under the slogan “More women in everything, less in nothing.” The race passed through the main streets of Bata, in which numerous runners divided into two categories took part: A (young people aged 20 to 40 years old) and B (adults, between 45 and 70 years old).
Equatorial Guinea’s women’s team, the National Nzalang, beat a very difficult South African team one goal to nil in the opening match of the Women’s CAN 2012, which was held in the new Malabo stadium. The game started with the kick-off from the First Lady of Equatorial Guinea, Constancia Mangue de Obiang, wearing the official team shirt, who has declared herself the ‘number one fan’ of the women’s national team. As additional motivation, the team was offered ten million CFA francs (about $US20,000) for each goal scored by the national team players.
After a 5-1 win against Nzok-Nzomo, El Sony claimed the league title for the third straight year, with 72 points.
El Sony, doing their best Real Madrid impression, dominated Nzok-Nzomo throughout the entire match. They celebrated their victory with champagne and beer on the field.
This season, El Sony lost only two games: one to rival Atletico de Malabo and one to Deportivo Mongomo. Now, they move onto the Champions League where they’ve been eliminated in the first phase of their last few appearances.
At the third and qualifying round of the CAN 2013 held last Thursday in Johannesburg (South Africa) has matched the national team of Equatorial Guinea with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The draw resulted in the following pairings:
RD del Congo-Equatorial Guinea
Central African Republic-Burkina Faso
Sierra Leone -Tunisia
The first leg of matches will take place this September 7 and September 9 and the return matches will take place on October 12 and 14. This is the first time that Equatorial Guinea will face the Democratic Republic of Congo.
According to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS, Equatorial Guinea’s Black Stars and Al Ain forward, Asamoah Gyan, has said he will return to his team earlier than expected.
Gyan decided to hang his boots temporarily after missing a crucial spot kick in the semi-final clash against Zambia at the Africa Cup of Nations 2012 – a game the Stars lost 0-1.
Asamoah Gyan has decided to return earlier than promised and was quoted for saying he would return to the squad in the latter stages of this year it was found out that he has already been warming up for his return.
“He promised returning later in the year, but he has rescinded his decision and planning to return soonest,” a close pal of the striker told DAILY GUIDE SPORTS in an interview.
