The head coach of the indomitable lionesses of Cameroon Gabriel Zabo, has named six home based players in his final squad to represent Cameroon at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers playoffs scheduled for New Zealand.
The Women’s World Cup playoffs will take place in the island nation from the 18 to the 23rd of February 2023, with the indomitable lions of Cameroon been one of the 10 Nations that will be vying for the three remaining tickets for the 2023 Women’s World Cup to be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand in July and August this year.
