Cameroon earned the right to square-off with hosts China in the four team preparatory tournament_finals, this April 7, 2019 before the female world cup proper.
The Lioness of Cameroon beat Croatia by 2-1 to beautifully set up a crunching encounter between themselves and the 1999 world cup runner’s up. China who on their part trampled on Russia by 4-1 are red hot favorites to cinch this one.
This would be a repeat of the 2015 Women’s world cup round of 16 with that particular tie ending 1-0 in favour of the Asian giants, courtesy Wang Shashan at the 12 minute of play. the goal was enough to crush the lionesses hope of being the second African female team to make the quarter finals after the super falcons did in 1999.
Football lovers are already licking their lips to the delicately poised encounter_with the arrival of the 23-year-old midfield boss from UDG Tenerife (Raissa Feudjio), the game proves to be one that would be eye catching.
The indomitable Lionesses took to this competition as their first major competition since grabbing a world cup ticket to France by finishing third in the 2018 AWCON that look place in Ghana, 2018.
The lionesses had a favourable tie in the draws(Canada, New Zealand, and the Netherlands) are not the worst of opponents, but group the group promises to be very tricky with 2015 Hosts_Canada relishing their chances of ending the first round as the Messiah.
