“Our goal was to win five games. We are at four. There is only one missing. ” This is what Carl Enow Ngachu, the coach of Cameroon’s women’s football team, told the CAF website after qualifying for the finals of the 10th edition of the Women AFCON 2016, which takes place since November 19 in Yaounde and Limbe.
For the Cameroonian coach, it would simply refer to the logic that the Cameroonians should overcome the very dreaded Nigerians on December 3, at the end of the final. All the more so because, he says, “if I rely on statistics, Nigeria has never played the final when the competition is played in Central Africa“.
This time, while the tournament is taking place in Central Africa, Nigeria is in the final. Hyper favorites of the competition and haloed with their previous seven trophies in this competition, the Nigerians must however be able to break through the Cameroonian defense, which has remained indomitable until now. With zero goal conceded since the start of the tournament.
