16-year old goalkeeping sensation Michaely Bihina has been handed a maiden start for the senior women’s selection of Cameroon this afternoon against Chile. The technical staff of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon have picked the Eclair of Sa’a and current Under-17 Lionesses goalkeeper ahead of Bawou Ange Gabrielle.
The Under-17 Lionesses goalkeeper starred for country keeping clean sheets against Sao Tome at home and away in March 2020, scoring in the process.
She has scored twice operating as a forward for Eclair of Sa’a this season.
Michaely will be protected by a back four of Estelle Johnson, Marie Aurelle Awona, Collette Ndzana and Mayi Kith.
Midfield trio Meyong Menene, Ngock Yango Jeannette Grace and Ngo Mbleleck Genevieve are deployed in the absence of injured Raissa Feudjo.
Captain Gabriella Aboudi lead the attack from the wings, while Ngo Batoum is operating from the other wings and five goals striker Nchout Njoya Ajara leads the lines.

Cameroon and Chile will for the first time clash in an official playoff qualifiers for a major tournament.
The girls of coach Alain Djeumfa failed to progress directly to Tokyo from their continental qualifying round losing to Zambia on away goal rule (4-4) aggregate in March 2020.
Cameroonians expect the Lionesses to outclass the 2018 Copa America runners-up at Antalya Turkey in a double-header encounter with first-leg coming up today 4:00 pm local time.
Missing out in the 2016 edition was a very bitter pill for the Cameroonian players and fans alike thus raising the excitement level once again ahead of today’s mouthwatering finale between two different continental giants in female football.
On the side of La Roja , the workforce is full, like that of Cameroon. We note the presence of goalkeeper Christiane Endler who plays at PSG Feminin. There is also Daniela Zamora , the captain who scored a hat-trick in the Comnebol Cup two weeks ago.
This announces a bitter duel against Cameroon, Saturday afternoon in Turkey”(shots fired).
