The assistant coach of the Lionesses, Bernadette Annong said they have made sure they don’t focus on the weaknesses of their opponents. “We don’t know much about the weaknesses and strengths of our opponents. We only know it by what we read or by the statistics that are given. If you only keep on thinking of the weaknesses of the opponent, the opponent might not be weak that very time,” the assistant coach said.
Cameroon will face Canada, New Zealand and the Netherlands in the group stage of the World competition. France is the host of the tournament which rumbles off June 7.
