Portugal vs Cameroon Playoffs Final Preview
Portugal’s women’s side will aim for their first-ever ticket to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The Portuguese ladies are still an emerging side in European football.
The growth of the domestic league in Portugal (Campeonato Nacional Feminino) has helped expedite the development of the players a lot.
In their very last UEFA qualification playoff game, Portugal took the game to extra time against Iceland to give themselves a chance in the international playoffs final. With attacking stars like Jéssica Silva and youngster Kika Nazareth, Portugal will look to take the game to the opponent’s half.
Elsewhere, the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon will look to make their third appearance in the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Cameroon lost to Nigeria in the WAFCON quarter-finals and then took down Botswana to reach the qualification playoffs.
In the playoffs semi-final, they saw off the Thailand ladies by 2-0 goals to reach the playoffs final. With the likes of midfielder Genevieve Ngo Mbeleck, winger Ajara Nchout, and forward Gabrielle Onguéné, the Lionesse will look to beat Portugal to book a spot on the main stage.
The winner of this game will join Group E with the USA, the Netherlands, and Vietnam in the World Cup.
