Cameroon has qualified for the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup to take place in Uruguay.
Team Cameroon denied Nigeria qualification to a Women’s World Cup for the first time at any level by defeating Nigeria. After a 2-2 draw in Nigeria on 3 February, Cameroon held on to a 1-1 draw in Yaounde thanks to Alice Kameni’s first-half goal and secured their ticket to the World Cup due to the away goals rule.
The result ensures Cameroon’s second consecutive qualification for a U-17 Women’s World Cup, after they participated at Jordan 2016, where they were eliminated after the group stage.
Cameroon is joined by Ghana, South Africa, who secured their berth after a 6-1 aggregate win over Morocco on Saturday, as the three African teams at Uruguay 2018.
The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will be held from 13 November to 1 December across three host cities: Colonia del Sacramento, Maldonado and Montevideo.
