The Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon have registered a convincing 8-0 over the Queen Scorpions of The Gambia in the first leg last group-qualifying match of the 2022 Women Africa Cup of Nations.
Staged at the Ahmadou Ahidjio Stadium on February 18, the Lions demonstrated their supremacy as they took the lead in qualifying for the competition program to take place in Morocco.
In a match that looked like a training session, the lionesses opened scores in the third minute through Kameni Flora. After goals from Ajara Njoya and Bella Rose, Kameni would double her goal-scoring ability before the end of the first period of the game.
Returning from the locker room with a 4-0 deficit, the scorpions had hoped to make a difference but the confident Cameroon increased their scoring sheet with a set of goals.
Gladys Tatiana and Falone Meffoumetou alongside two goals from Genevieve Ngo Mbeleck sealed Cameroons emblematic victory at the Ahmadou Ahidjio sport facility.
The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon who are just away from qualifying for the 2022 Women Africa Cup of Nations will face The Gambia in a return and decisive leg in Banjul.
A win for Cameroon will permit them to join host country Morocco and Uganda alongside other countries for the 12-nation tournament.
