Head Coach of the Cameroon U18 girls Emile Tongtong touted his side’s technical superiority over the hosts and said the win was revenge for the boys side losing to their Nigerian counterparts on Thursday.

“Nigeria is a good and young side but my team is more technically sound,” Tongtong said.

“My players have been playing together for a long time and we know how to overcome pressure.

“I told my girls that we have to beat Nigeria in order to avenge our boys’ team and I am happy the girls made me proud”.ie A: Simy sends Rohr message ahead of AFCON.
