The coach of the Indomitable Lionesses and and his players started on Monday, August 8, 2016 the third preparatory training for the African Cup of Nations that Cameroon will host from November 19 to December 3, 2016.
As part of the preparation for the African Cup of Nations 2016 women, the Indomitable Lionesses started their third training session Monday, August 8, 2016, at the FECAFOOT Technical Centre (Cameroon Football Federation) in Yaounde. In addition to the 24 players from the two first groups performed in the Southwest Region, Enow Ngachu turned to Sophie Tardy and Zaphyra Nkamo , two binationals from Switzerland.
The technician will have time to appreciate the qualities of these two Swiss arrived in some particular circumstances. “It’s early to talk about their qualities. We started work yesterday (Monday, Ed). We have a few more days to observe. And I think that from there, I could answer you. I have never seen them play in Switzerland, I never displaced myself to go watch their matches. They seized us in writing that they wanted to play for Cameroon. And at home, all those who wish to wear the colors of Cameroon are welcome. It was their paperwork, they are there and that will allow us to see if they can also be useful for the Cameroon national team, “said Enow Ngachu, reached by telephone.
During the two weeks of activities, he says, the work will be much more focused on the technical and tactical aspects. “We always try to work the core of group. That is to say, we want to have those who continue to impress us and always putting them in competition with those who were already there. I think we’re on a roll. But we still have another idea by 21 August at the end of this third grouping. So we will still only keep the best for the future “, says one who has enabled Cameroon to be vice-champion of Africa in 2014, in Namibia.
But once again, this course takes place without the presence of several executives of the den. Notably, Gabrielle Aboudi ONGUENE, Raisa Feudjio, Jeannette Grace Ngock Yango, Falone Mefomet or Gaëlle Deborah Enganamouit now leaving a big injury incurred early in the season.
According to the Cameroonian coach, the time is not yet ripe for the arrival of professional players in the selection. “The groupings do not go during the FIFA dates. Those who are there, they are those who are on holiday and we try to work with them. So we can only see them during FIFA periods when international friendlies are permitted. Compared to that, it is still difficult to have all the players playing in Europe. ”
