The head coach of the indomitable lionesses of Cameroon, Alain Djeumfa, has insisted that the Olympic qualifiers are a female tournament, so only women should be fielded during games.
Alain Djeumfa was speaking on Monday in his pre_match press conference in Kinshasa, ahead of his side’s return game against the Democratic Republic of Congo on Tuesday, at the Stade De Martyrs. Sitting side by side with midfielder Raissa Feudjio, Djeumfa said “it is a feminine competition and we hope that tomorrow it should be two teams made up of only women on the field of play”. The declarations from the Cameroonian gaffer, puts question marks on the Congolese squad, though he did not overemphasized on the point.
Djeumfa proceeded “Tomorrow’s game will definitely be different from the first leg game .We have weighed the temperature in the Congolese camp. We will try to win”.
He added ” the first half in Yaoundé was played in a good Sunny condition, unfortunately in the second segment they were heavy rains, which disturbed our collective play.”
Coach Alain Djeumfa revealed that they have watched videos of Congo’s game against Tanzania in the previous round, and admitted that DR Congo is a good team but have in front of them the indomitable Lionesses.
Raissa Feudjio missed the first leg in Yaoundé through suspension, but attended Monday’s press conference, where she said “where she spoke in relation to the spirit in camp, we are fighters, we started the job in Yaoundé and we are here to finish it. We will give our best to win the match”.
Alain Djeumfa and his girls go into Wednesday’s encounter needing just a draw, to qualify for the next round, where they will face Ivory Coast, who stunned African champions, Nigeria.
