Africa Soccer Lionesses of Cameroon prevail over Lionesses of the Teranga

Cameroon senior women’s national football team beat Senegal’s Lionesses of Teranga 1-0 on Saturday in a strength-testing match.

Cameroon scored the only goal of the game in the fifth minute courtesy of Kévine Ossol’s strike.

Senegal struggled to get a foothold of the game as coach Mame Moussa Cisse  had overhauled the starting line-up that held its own against the rivals in an earlier match.

Cisse said she was proud of her team, adding that these two friendly matches would be very useful to prepare them for the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for Morocco next month.

In the first friendly, Cameroon settled for a two-all draw with Senegal on June 15 at the Stade de la Reunification.

The two teams are preparing for the continental football showpiece that will run from July 2 to 23 in the cities of Rabat and Casablanca.

Senegal are in Group A alongside Morocco, Burkina Faso and Uganda.

Cameroon lead Group B that comprises Zambia, Togo and Tunisia.
