Cameroon lose Olympic ticket after drawing with Chile

Danito NSUBUGA

10 Woman Cameroon Footbal team failed to overturn the 2-1 first leg loss to Chile and consequently lost their chance to be at the Tokyo Olympic games .

In the second leg played at the Arslan Zeki Demirci Sports Complex they needed to match Chile’s first leg result or even better to stand a chance of progressing.

As they pushed for goal, defender Beigitte Omboudou got sent off for a second bookable offense . She had already been registered in the referee’s books in the 64th minute.

Omboudou’s exit demoralised her teammates and all they did was to hold on to keep tie respectable.

After the final whistle, Chile sealed their first ever Olympic ticket thanks to first leg goals from Camila Saez and Carla Guerrero’s goals.

They join Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Grwat Britain, Netherlands, NewZealand, Sweden, USA , Zambia and the hosts Japan.
