Cameroun coach Enoh Ngachu said he was impressed with the performance of his team in the encounter that was used to prepare the team ahead of their qualifying match for the next African Women Championship against Senegal.
According to him, the exploits of the girls show they have the potentials to excel in the quest for the qualification ticket for the championship.
Ngachu said they will correct the mistakes noticed during the game before their game against Senegal.
He said the target of the team is to have a better team in the future as they have learnt from the mistakes of Nigeria.
Speaking on the dwindling fortune of the Nigerian side, Ngachu said Nigeria paraded the same set of players for over a decade and that is the result of what the country is reaping at the moment.
His Nigeria counterpart, Edwin Okon said it was still work in progress as the gate for good players is still open.
Okon said both local and foreign based players will be given the same opportunity to fight for a shirt in the team.
