We were expecting Cameroon, but it is Zambia who is in the lead at the end of the 2nd day of group B of the Women’s AFCON 2022 . This Wednesday, the Copper Queens have indeed seized control by snatching victory in added time against Tunisia (1-0) in Casablanca, Morocco. While they held a point almost synonymous with qualification after their initial card against Togo (4-1), the Eagles of Carthage Dames cracked in the 94th minute on a goal from Avell Chitundu. Consequence: Zambia, who missed a penalty in the first period, practically validated their ticket for the quarter-finals, while Tunisia will play their destiny on Saturday against Cameroon.
Cameroonians, precisely, go from disappointment to disappointment. If the inaugural 0-0 against Zambia, another cador, was excusable, on the other hand the new draw conceded against Togo (1-1), which discovers the competition, really stains… Mafille Woedikou had even struck the first for the Eperviers Dames from the penalty spot (28th), but Estelle Johnson equalized before the break with a header from a free kick (38th). Like Cathérine Mbengono at the start of the game, the Cameroonians again lacked realism, while Nchout Ajara was again denied a goal for offside. Essential awakening against Tunisia under penalty of going to the front of an immense disappointment. Togo will attempt the feat against Zambia.
