The Volleyball Lionesses of Cameroon have suffered a 3 sets to zero defeat in their first outing at the 2019 International Federation of Volleyball World Championship.
The girls of coach Jean Rene Akono had a difficult first set scoring 14 points in the first set, 15 points in the second and 10 points in the third set as Russia recorded a win in their first outing.
Set 1 (25-14)
Set 2 (25-15)
Set 3 (25-10)
Reaching double figures in terms of points scored for Cameroon’s captain Nana Christelle and her mate is worth commenting giving that in the last 3 years Russia has been amongst the top 10 Volleyball countries in the World.
Cameroon have been very consistent on the continent in the last 3 years but are yet to carry their continental performances to the global stage.
This Saturday’s outing is the first of 11 programmed for the Lionesses in this year’s tournament
“Today was a tough day for us, we are here to learn and to win the maximum number of sets and matches as possible, we will work hard to do better in our next game” captain Christelle Nana told the media after the game.
“We worked on a system to make it difficult for them but it didn’t payoff for us. Our team is confident despite the results,we had difficulties with their service which were very good,in the next games we will improve our performance” :Sherelyn Adedayo told the media post match.
Cameroon face China in their second outing on Sunday in a game scheduled to kick off at 4:30 AM Cameroon time.
