After having missed out narrowly on the CAF awards 2019 to Nigeria’s Assisat Oshoala, Nchout Njoya Ajara would be playing her first competitive game against Zambia in the 5th round of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifier at her own backyard.

The 27-year-old who was statistically only matched by her shadow last season for club and country would need get over the incident that took place in Hurghada, Egypt, where she agonisingly lost the CAF Women’s player of the year award to an almost natural born winner, Asisat Oshoala – to put up a good show on home soil.

Talking of key players in the game, there is no looking beyond Nchout Ajara as she has almost singlehandedly carried the indomitable Lionesses to this last round with 60 percent of Cameroon’s goals coming via her.

Nchout Ajara is set to receive a heroine’s welcome at the Omnisport stadium, and if she manages to hit top gear, it might be a long afternoon for coach Bruce Mwape and his girls.
