After being rescheduled three times, the Central Africans will meet their South American foes in April and the coach has invited 25 players from home
Cameroon women’s coach Alain Djeumfa has named 25 players for their Olympic Games intercontinental play-off against Chile next month.
The Indomitable Lionesses will battle La Roja in a quest to return to the Olympic Games for the first time since London 2012, having lost out on an automatic ticket to the Tokyo 2020 event to Zambia.
The showdown between the African and South American sides had been rescheduled thrice but is now billed to take place in April.
Ahead of next month’s meeting, coach Djeumfa invited 25 home-based players for a local camp and it marks the Central Africans fifth preparation camp since they bowed to the Copper Queens.

In the 25-player list, four goalkeepers, seven defenders, seven midfielders and seven forwards were named for the camp in Cameroon’s capital.
Notable invitees are Tokyo University’s Djuka Chanelle, Charlene Meyong, who recently joined Chinese side Meizhou, Eclair Filles De Sa’a’s Alexander Takounda, and Ebolowa FC’s Edjangue Siliki.
According to the Cameroon Football Federation, the named players will resume camp on March 17 in Yaounde, and the final preparation will be concluded on April 5.
The 25-woman list will be trimmed after the camp ahead of their trip to Turkey and will, later, be joined by their foreign compatriots.
Instead of a home-and-away fixture, the Africans are now billed to square up against Jose Letelier’s team at a neutral venue in Turkey.
