THE ROAD

TO FRANCE

Having negotiated the group phase of this year’s African finals without too much trouble, Cameroon once again came up short against Nigeria, their conquerors in the last two finals, in the last four. That left the Indomitable Lionesses facing Mali in the match for third place, with a ticket to France 2019 at stake, and they responded by claiming a stirring 4-2 win.




THE COACH

Joseph Ndoko

Formerly in charge at Cameroonian men’s club Aigle de la Menoua, Ndoko, who will turn 44 during France 2019, worked for six years in the country’s professional league before taking on the Indomitable Lionesses in 2017. And Ndoko began his tenure in fine style, leading Cameroon to third place at the African finals – his first major tournament – to secure a Women's World Cup berth.




THE STAR

Gabrielle Onguene

Onguene announced herself on the global stage with some excellent performances at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada, where she helped her team to reach the Round of 16 for the first time. Since then, the attacking midfielder has blossomed into one of Africa's top players, and scored a crucial goal against Mali to ensure Cameroon’s qualification for France 2019.
