The U17 lionesses of Cameroon have beaten Sao Tome 6#0 in a return leg preliminary of the African Zone Qualifiers for the 2020 U17 women’s world cup. The game took place at the Yaounde Ngoa Ekelle Stadium, with Brenda Tabe, Mbiandji Suzie, Ndome Mbelle Elise, Bihina Michaely and Elive Larissa on target for Cameroon.

Brenda Tabe and Ngaseh Mbele Bernadette squandered clear cut opportunities to put the baby lionesses in front in the opening stages of the game, as they both failed to direct their shots into Rosa Da Trindada’s goal.

Sao Tome’s Resistance would last just for over 25 minutes, before Ngaseh Mbele Bernadette and Brenda Tabe combined for the latter to open scores, with a powerful header that got Goalkeeper Rosa Da Trindada beaten.

The goal opened room for more Cameroon domination, which paid off 10 minutes later, as Mbiandji Suzie fired the baby lionesses two goals up.

Cameroon’s second goal forced coach Aureliano Mendes to effect his first substitution, bringing in Sanches Bomfim Gomes, to replace Lopes Cladise, but that could not prevent further casualty for Sao Tome, as Brenda Tabe was on the score sheet again at the 45th minute, to hand the U17 lionesses a comfortable 3#0 lead at half-time.



It took the U17 lionesses just four second half minutes to increase tally, as Captain Ndome Mbelle Elise pounced on Wabeua Diane’s pass, to send goalkeeper Rosa Da Trindada for the fourth time to the back of her net.

Sao Tome’s Camble Barbosa Neto picked up an injury at the 55th minute, and was replaced by Freire Catua Wilsa. Cameroon’s first substitution saw Wabeua Djiatio Diane ceding her place to Ngo Nkaa Michelle Rosine.

Ngo Nkaa Michelle Rosine had an immediate impact, as she was foul  in Sao Tome’s box, and Cameroon awarded a penalty, which was surprisingly taken by Cameroon’s Goalkeeper, Bihina Michaely, who put Cameroon five goals up.

Cameroon’s second substitution saw Elive Larissa coming in for Ngaseh Mbele Bernadette. Elive had no time to waste, as she headed home Ngo Nkaa Michelle’s cross, to make it 6#0 for Cameroon.

Sao Tome failed to get a consolation, as Cameroon sailed through to the next round of Qualifiers with a 10 nil aggregate score, haven won the away tie 4#0.

The U17 lionesses will now face either Uganda in the next round of Qualifiers.
