Sunday’s game was similar despite the pressure from the Congolese team.

The coach for the DR Congo team Thomas Moukwi in a post-match press conference acknowledged the strength of Cameroon, current African champion.
He said it is always an honour to play against a team with much experience and finesse.
The coach said his team will improve its techniques to better face Cameroon in a subsequent outing.
The coach for the Lionesses praised his players for the great show.

The national coach said their primary objective is to stay on top.
