2019 Women’s World Cup: Indomitable Lionesses sail through to the 16th finals

The indomitable Lionesses have put up a spectacular performance to qualify Cameroon to the round of 16 at the FIFA Women’s World Cup ongoing in France.

They beat their opponent, the New Zealand team 2-1 to get to the next round.

The very dramatic goal came from Cameroon’s forward Nchout Ajara who netted the winner, five minutes into added time to send Cameroon through.

Ajara is now the second Cameroon player to score at two consecutive world cups.

Her brilliant performance earned her the award of player of the match.

All three goals of the game came in during the second half of the match.

Cameroon conceded an own goal from defender Marie Aurelle Awona.

The girls played with more intensity to deliver what many have described as the most dramatic win of the tournament so far, scoring 11seconds to the end of the game.

Cameroon has finished third place in the group stage but still qualifies for the knock out phase of the tournament.

The Lionesses needed the win against New Zealand to stay in the competition.

Canada comes first position, The Netherlands second and New Zealand comes fourth position after losing to Cameroon in the group stage.

The Super Falcons of Nigeria have also qualified for the Second Round of the ongoing FIFA Women World Cup in France.

The girls reached the last 16 picking the last of the four qualification slots reserved for the best placed third teams.

They join Cameroon as the second African team at the historic 16th finals.
