“(Business in Cameroon) - Our target was to win five matches. We have won four so far. There is only one remaining”. These are the words used by Carl Enow Ngachu, manager of the national Cameroonian women's football team, when he talked to the CAF website after the qualification of his charges for the final of the 10th edition of the women's AfCON, which has been playing out since 19 November in Yaoundé and Limbé.
For the Cameroonian coach, it is simply logical that the Cameroonians would win over the very impressive Nigerians on 3 December, at the end of the final. Thus especially as, he highlights, “based on statistics, Nigeria never played the final when the competition was taking played in Central Africa”.
This time though, even though the tournament is taking place in Central Africa, Nigeria is got a ticket to the final. Uber favourites in the competition and endowed with the glory of their past seven trophies in this competition, the Nigerians will however have to break through the Cameroonian defence, who has remained indomitable so far. With no goals conceded since the beginning of the tournament.
