After Zambia (0-0), the Indomitable Lionesses conceded a second draw against Togo (1-1) tonight on the second day of the ongoing women’s CAN. Cameroon is doomed to win their next game.
Second missed game for Cameroon national team at Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (CAN) in Morocco. The Indomitable Lionesses failed to learn from Sunday’s mistakes against Zambia (0-0). Togo took the opportunity to force another 1-1 draw on Gabriel Zabo’s daughters this time. The Cameroonians took the lead after a Woedikou penalty (28th minute).e). Fortunately, Estelle Johnson then equalized through the lead, a free-kick well executed by Gabrielle Aboudi Onguéné (38th minute).e).
The Lionesses Make Samuel Eto’o ‘Ly’
So far, the irrepressible lionesses make Samuel Eto’o “lie”. Indeed, the president of the Cameroonian Football Federation considers his country’s team to be the best on the continent. problem ? Nchout Njoya Ajara and her teammates fail to achieve that status after two CAN matches. And yet, a few hours before this game against the little thumb of this tournament, the Cameroonians did not hide their hubris. It was a good mood given that Zambia’s 1-0 win over Tunisia earlier in the afternoon gave the Lionesses a chance to take first place in Group B tonight.
There was a headwind from the start and they quickly took control of the game, but Cameroon’s lack of efficiency quickly dampened their will to win in the face of a wary Togolese side. Cathérine Mbengono was the first to miss a goal ball in the first quarter of an hour. In the end, his too open foot sent the ball wide of the frame (15th minute).e). Nchout Ajara then scores but his goal is disallowed for a logical offside position.
Cameroon doomed to victory
Goalkeeper Ange Bawou offered Woedikou a penalty that gave the Togolese the lead without dominating (0-1, 28th minute).e). The answer comes immediately. After a series of set pieces, Aboudi Onguéné first hit the bar before a few moments later he met Estelle Johnson to make it 1-1. The second half will be like the first but without the two goals scored. The Lionesses are doomed to win against Tunisia on July 9th.
