JORDAN 2016: Cameroon claim scalp over Flamingoes rival



The Flamingoes first opponent at the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, Brazil, were over the weekend beaten by Cameroon’s junior national side in their last friendly match.
The loss came before the match against Nigeria at the King Abdullah Stadium, Amman on October 1.
The Cameroon Lionesses defeated the South Americans 2-0, thanks to a second half brace from Flora Kameni.
Having thrashed hosts Jordan 7-0 last week, Brazil exhibited defensive frailties and lack of physicality against Cameroon.
Meanwhile, the Flamingoes delegation to the World Cup which begins this weekend in Jordan, on Monday night, flew out of the country from Abuja.
According to the NFF, they would stop over in Dubai before they connect to Jordan.
The Flamingoes, quarter finalists at the last three editions of the championship (Trinidad and Tobago 2010, Azerbaijan 2012 and Costa Rica 2014), pounded Namibia and South Africa home and away to qualify for this year’s World Cup. They are also drawn against North Korea and England.
