Head coach of the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon, Joseph Brian insists his team will be on a revenge mission when they face the Super Falcons of Nigeria (who are the defending champions) in their Tuesday's semi-final clash at the ongoing 2018 Women's Africa Cup of Nations at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Cameroon, hosts of the last Africa Women's Nations Cup were denied the chance of winning her first title two years ago, following a 1-0 defeat to Nigeria in the final.
The Cameroonians also lost to the Super Falcons in the final of the 2014 edition hosted by South Africa.
“We are out for revenge. In 2014 and 2016 we weren't good enough. Everyone knows Nigeria have beaten us a lot over the years, but we are prepared for them now,” Brian said during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
“Everyone knows Nigeria is a force to be reckoned with in women's football in Africa and have won 9 times against us but one-day things could change.”
Cameroon finished top of Group A with seven points ahead of Mali, hosts Ghana and Algeria to seal a spot in the semi-finals.
The winner of the match is guaranteed a place in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France.
