The president of the Sierra Leone Football Association Isha Johansen (photo) has today been elected as FIFA International Council representative for Africa..

Hate her or like her, Isha has forever stamped her name on the history of football (soccer) in Sierra Leone and the African continent.

Her enemies and friends alike seem to be congratulating her en masse on social media as the news thundered across the world. A fitting gift to the just celebrated International Women’s Day as she is the first Sierra Leonean and African woman to rise to that position in FIFA. But Isha did not win because she is a woman. This is somebody that overcame many challenges over the years in the male-dominated world of soccer both in and out of her country.

Congratulations Isha.
