Tokyo 2020 Olympics Qualifiers: Laborious 2nd Round qualification for the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon

The indomitable lionesses have qualified for the 3rd and final round of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after a difficult 90 minutes nil game which surprised both fans and sports pundits.

In a game considered a formality from the part of the Cameroonian fans with good memories from the just ended Women World cup, the indomitable lionesses toiled in front of the Ethiopian ladies at the Yaounde Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium.
The first 45 minutes saw the girls of coach Alain Djeumfa unable to organise play up front. The first goal scoring opportunity came in as late as at the 20th minute when Raissa Feudjio’s 20 yard (ca. 18 m) shot went off target. 10 minutes later, she got another try which equally went far across the goal post. The Ethiopians gained in confidence and rapidly became a threat in the Cameroonian half gaining two dangerous free kicks and hitting the woodwork at the 43rd minute.

Coach Alain Djeumfa of Cameroon will proceed with some tactical changes and opt for a more offensive game style in the second half. Meyong Menene and Aka Edoa Henriette will come into play (to replace uninspired Michaela Abam and Sonkeng Isis) to spice the attack line lead by Aboudi Onguene and Njoya Ajara.
The goal scoring opportunities will come in numbers but the lionesses will miss them one after the other.

Therese Abena will come in for the last 5 minutes in place of Ngock Yango but this change will equally prove unproductive.

The lionesses qualify for the 3rd round and will face DR Congo.
