Captain on the day, Ngo Annette conceded 4 goals which could certainly be avoided against Spain, in the Lionesses preparatory match-in view for the upcoming Women’s world cup.

The game took place on Friday, May 18, 2019. The 33-year-old Annette Ngo, goal keeper for the Lionesses was shaking like a kid headed to school for her first time, with weak reflexes now as dead as a candle wax.

Days after receiving the blessings of the Cameroon population, the Lionesses have already started receiving curses from passionate football fans after they swallowed one, two, three, and four in the hands of their opponents.

Though it is still a preparatory game, the scorline makes the Lioneses look amateurish- worst still, their goal keeper. The present first choice keeper has been around since 2011 and participated in major tournaments like the Olympics 2012 and the Women’s world cup 2015.

The four goals conceded against Spain is not the only high scoring game which the keeper has looked rusty: in 2018 against France, on Tuesday, October 9th, she suffered 6 goals-some of which were avoidable.

With the weakness spotted in the camp of the Lionesses, there might be ‘danger’ for Cameroon when the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Canada come storming at the Lionesses defense a fortnight from now.
