The scorers, Ajara Njoya and Meyong Menene may have taken the credit for getting the goals to help Cameroon beat the DRC by two goals to nil this Thursday in the third Tokyo 2020 Olympics qualifiers game against DR Congo in Yaounde.

But Cameroon’s 19-year old left back Collette Ndzana Fegue was the main attraction according to many pundits on the day.

Deputising for suspended Leuko Patrice Chibosso, very collected and made it very difficult for DR Congo’s Kipoyi Monique Ruth who was operating in the left-wing position.

In addition to defending well, the defender was very involved in the game. Her energy in the right flank made the flank Cameroon’s regular route to the Congolese half.

It is amazing how she switches between football and Futsal; in 2018 during a FIFA organized FUTSAL competition in Buenos Aires-Argentina, Ndzana after scoring three goals in Cameroon’s 5 nil win over Chile, she told FIFA.Com that Futsal makes her better in football and she will like to continue doing both.

Having featured for the Under 20 Lionesses of Cameroon as a left winger, Ndzana’s dexterity maybe strange but coming from a daughter of a former Footballer, one can only say she is a daughter that resembles the father.

Despite making her debut for the Lionesses in the 2018 COSAFA tournament under coach Joseph Ndoko,the Eclair De Sa’a girl has had arguably her best game for the Lionesses this Thursday against DR Congo in Yaounde.

Speaking post-match coach Alain Djeumfa described her as a complete multi-function player.

I took alot of time to talk to her to get her ready for this game, we are satisfied with her output today, it is important to have such complete players in our team” Djeumfa told the media.

Collette and her team mates will face Congo in the return game on the 8th of October in Kinshasa.
