The failure of the Indomitable Lionesses to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics was a drag on their good momentum. They were stopped dead by Chile (1-2 and 0-0), during two play-offs to which the Zambians had forced them (3-2 and 1-2). This poor performance did not make us forget the good 2019 World Cup of the Lionesses and their two consecutive finals at the CAN (2016 and 2018).
The Indomitable Lionesses will now focus on preparations for the final phase of the African Cup of Nations (CAN) which will take place in Morocco next year.
In Nigeria to win
Invited to Nigeria to participate in the next AISHA BUHARI tournament, scheduled for Nigeria next September, the 30 players chosen by Gabriel Zabo, new coach of the selection ranked 52nd in the last FIFA ranking in August 2021 entered training this weekend at the Mbankomo CAF Center of Excellence near Yaoundé. This first phase of the preparation takes place only with the local players. It will run until August 21.
At the end of the said screening, another gathering will be held from September 23 to 9, 2021. The professionals will join the group from September 10, 2021 in Lagos, Nigeria.
