Cameroon have declared their readiness to carry the flag of Africa all the way at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
Cameroon became the only African country left in the tournament after African champions Nigeria and Cote d’ Ivoire were sent packing in the group stage.
Nigeria managed only a draw at the tournament, while Cote d’ Ivoire lost all three group games.
Cameroon, on the other hand, finished second behind Japan in Group C after they beat Ecuador 6-1 and came from behind to beat Switzerland 2-1 in their final group game.
“Just the fact that we qualified we know we are not only defending the colours of Cameroon, but we are also defending the colours of Africa,” stated Cameroon coach Enow Ngachu.
“Compared to Nigeria, Cameroon is a small team. I said it we are still learning. We came here to learn.
“We are not under any pressure. And since Nigeria is eliminated, we shall continue to play and defend the colours of Africa.”
Cameroon will now face China in the Round of 16 of the World Cup.
