The Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon have claimed Africa’s third slot to the Women’s World Cup following a 4-2 victory over Lady Eagles of Mali in the third place match of the ongoing African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON).
The Lionesses will join South Africa and Nigeria at next year’s world event in France.
Ninon Abena of Cameroon opened scoring 32 minutes into the match and eight minutes later completed her brace to put the victors 2 goals up.
Mali respond with Fatoumata Diarra’s strike in the 44th minute and an own goal from Aurelle Awona in the 56th minute put the Lady Eagles back into the game.
With a strong resolve to win the game, Gabrielle Onguene increased Cameroon’s lead in the 62nd minute while teammate Christine Manie sealed the team’s victory exactly at regulation time.
Nigeria will take on South Africa on Saturday in the finals of the tournament in Ghana. (NAN)
