Special AFWCON 2016 - The Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon slaps the Pharaohs of Egypt 2-0 in the opening matching

Chantal Biya together with her husband President Paul Biya witnessed live together with the more than 40 000 spectators present at the opening match of the African Women Cup of Nations between the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon and the Pharaohs of Egypt. The match ended on 2-0 score in favour of the Indomitable Lionesses who mounted pressure on their Egyptian counterparts from the start of the match till the blast of the final whistle.

The first half of the match ended with a 1-0 in favour of the Lionesses, with many other missed scoring opportunities that finally led to a penalty kick during the second half.

The first goal was a center by  Gabrielle Aboudi  Onguené, at the 25th minute, that went over goalkeeper Maha Elder's head into the net. The second goal was a masculine penalty shot by Team Captain Christine Manie, who swayed Goalkeeper Maha Elder to the opposite side and netted goal number TWO for the green, red, yellow girls at the 73rd minute.

Out of the three attackers on the Cameroon side, only the Queen Shooter Gaelle Enganaouit did not shake the net, but each time she held the ball it was a standing ovation.

The next rendez-vous for the girls for the second day of play will be on Tuesday November 22nd against South Africa.
