ZIMBABWE international Tino Kadewere is excited to have been nominated for the Marc-Vivien Foe award.
The striker, who has been outstanding for Lyon in their chase for the title, will make history if he can win the award for best African player in French Ligue 1.
“It’s an honour and I’m really proud… It’s really a pleasure to be among the best African players on that list, and being able to represent my country and doing my country proud,” Kadewere told ZTN in an exclusive interview.
