Cameroon will seek to keep alive their bid for a maiden appearance at the FIFA U20 Women's World Cup, Costa Rica 2022™ when they meet Nigeria on Saturday, 22 January 2022.

The young Lionesses will be playing the Falconets for the second time at the U20 level following the 3-2 defeat on penalties against the latter at the Morocco 2019 African Games.

Most Cameroonians will be expecting their side to revenge that loss when the two teams meet in the fourth round showdown but coach Ndoumou Mike is not motivated by such history.

"Nigeria has more experience in these types of competition better than us and being to several World Cup more than we do but no two games are the same," Mike told

"We've tried to learn our lessons and improved. We are very certain that it is going to be a good game and a positive outing."

The Central Africans are without a competitive game since a 9-0 aggregate win over regional rivals DR Congo in October as they advanced to the fourth round following the third round withdrawal of Gabon.

They, however, cruised to 4-0 and 5-0 friendly wins over Authentic ladies and Caiman Filles respectively and Mike believes the test games have prepared them enough to the meeting with the Nigerians.

"It's been a while we've not played official matches but during those periods we've been playing friendlies and we've learned our lessons in those games," the tactician continued.

"We are sure it will help us in preparation for this important encounter. Cameroon team is on the rise and we're doing everything to make sure we keep going upwards and, at the end, we have the results for our effort."
