After the match, at a press conference, the coach of the Equatorial Guinea Girls, Esteban Becker acknowledged the great game played by his team and the captain, Ayonman. Coach Becker said “he has twenty-one high-quality players, and that for the upcoming match against Senegal, he might reserve some players who are slightly injured”.

Equatorial Guinea government officials say that education is essential to developing the human capital the nation needs to manage its resources and transform its economy.
