Cameroon exit women’s World Cup
Cameroon was knocked out of the 2015 women’s World Cup after a 1-0 defeat to China.
Africa’s sole survivor at the women’s World Cup, Cameroon, crashed out in the last 16 stage to China despite a spirited showing. Both sides finished runners-up in their respective groups and displayed an entertaining high-tempo match.
China took the lead early in the game; Wang Shansan volleying home from a corner-kick in the 12th minute. From then on, the Chinese relied more on counter-attacks as they looked to protect their slender lead against a barrage of Cameroonian attacks. Unfortunately for the Africans, they could not convert their chances and paid with an exit.
Cameroon leave the tournament with heads held high having put up a respectable performance; even leaving the defending champions, Japan, with a thing or two to ponder.
