Ngono Mani

 

The 35-year-old is the leading goal scorer for the lionesses, and one of the more experienced, so_she definitely can point out something heart aching when she says:”We are not happy though it was a preparatory tournament for the world cup proper. We have to note that matches are played on details. It remains a preparatory tournament, the most important is the world cup”.

The indomitable lionesses of Cameroon fell at the final of a four team pre world cup tournament to China by 2-1_after beating Croatia to their umpteenth final played, but no major silverware.Some football fanatics have described their stage fright in finals like the “ghost hunted” finals team.

Ngono Mani has participated in every landmark achievements of the lionesses in nearly 2 decades; since making her debut for the national side in a 2002 world cup qualifiers match against South Africa, making her approximately 17 years old in the present side.

The poachers role cannot be underestimated. She would take the experience of performing at the highest levels (London Olympics 2012, and world cup 2015) to the upcoming football jamboree, with the finest of female football teams coming from far and wide, the stage is set for the rare gem with over 40 national goals, and 45 club goals to bow out with an immortality status.
