CAMEROON Nickname : Indomitable Lionnesses

Previous participations : 1998 (4th), 2000 (eliminated in first round), 2002 (3rd), 2004 (finalist), 2006 (4th), 2008 (4th).

Qualification Path : The Indomitable Lionesses were exempted from the preliminary round and thus qualified after having beaten the DRC 2-0 and 3-0 in away and return games.

Team Profile: The Indomitable Lionesses are drawn in a difficult group alongside Equatorial Guinea, the title holders, Ghana, which is considered the number 2 on the continent despite its debacle in 2008 in Equatorial Guinea, and Algeria. Alongside Ghana and Nigeria, Cameroon is one of the three teams to have participated in all the editions of the CAN since its introduction in 1998. Having stumbled in 1998, 2006 and 2008 at the lower level, the Lionesses were finalists in 2004 but could not beat Nigeria. Some of those who played the final are still present in the team such as Marlyse Ngo Ndoumbouk and Francoise Bella who have since been playing professional football. They are six out of the 21 players playing out of Cameroon ; two in Europe (France and Germany), two in Asia (Thailand) and two in Africa (Nigeria).

In order to harmonise the old and the younger players, foreign and home based players, the technical staff led by Enow Ngachu, has multiplied campings after the team’s qualification which they obtained on May 6, 2010 in Yaounde. The best players of the under 17 squad that made sensation against Ghana in 2008 have been integrated into the team that trained till the last minutes in Kenya before travelling to South Africa, which the Lionesses last visited in last September for a friendly encounter against Bayana Bayana in Rustenburg, which ended 2-0 in favour of the Lionesses.

Gaëlle Deborah Enganamouit (09-06-1992, Lorema Fc Yaounde, Cameroon) - This is another young lioness who is part of this new generation with whom Cameroon hopes to play the leading role on the continental scene.

Even though we are in a difficult group alongside Ghana and Equatorial Guinea, we hope to grab a place for the World Cup, » he states.
