19-year-old Amazone FAP forward Suzie Mbianji, has become the first player from the Cameroon national football Academy (ANAFOOT) to be named player of the match [Woman of Guinnessico] in the Cameroon Women’s top-flight championship.
Mbianji scooped the accolade on Sunday following her exploits in her club’s 1-0 win against FC Ebolowa in match day 12 of the flagship women football competition in the country.

“I’m very happy to receive this price. It’s my first time and I dedicate this to my mum. She encourages me daily. My objectives this season are clear; I need to be among the top scorers, if possible be the top scorer,” Mbianji told reporters post-match.
