2024 WAFCONQ: Kenya Defeat Cameroon On Penalty Shootout To Reach 2nd Round

Kenya’s senior women’s national team, Harambee Starlets, produced a shocker after eliminating Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon in the 2024 WAFCON qualifiers on Tuesday.

Kenya won 4-3 on penalty shootout to reach the second round after aggregate score ended 1-1.

Cameroon won the first-leg 1-0 at home before Kenya recorded the same scoreline in the second-leg.

With 15 minutes left Cynthia Shilwatso Kenya’s goal to force the game into penalties.

Shilwatso whipped hard a freekick few yards from the area with the ball slipping through the hands of the Cameroonian keeper.

The visitor’s keeper had comfortably gathered the ball but what appeared to be a good catch turned disastrous as the ball slipped through her gloves and agonisingly crossed the line.

Cameroon featured at the 2022 WAFCON but lost 1-0 to Nigeria’s Super Falcons in the quarter-finals.
