23 October 2014, 13:06

Windhoek - Cameroon and Nigeria have won through to the 2015 Fifa Women’s World Cup after the pair edged tough semifinal wins over Ivory Coast and South Africa respectively, with the latter pair left to fight for one remaining Canada 2015 berth on Saturday, SuperSport reports.

Captain Christine Manie was the heroine for Cameroon scoring a dramatic and historic winner with just two minutes of extra time remaining to see off a resilient Ivory Coast on Wednesday in Windhoek, Namibia.

The central defender headed in from a corner to ensure that Les Lionnes qualified for their maiden Fifa Women’s World Cup.

Cameroon dominated periods of the game and finally broke the deadlock on the hour mark thanks to a thunderbolt from dynamic forward Gaelle Enganamouit. However, their lead lasted for only six minutes before Ines Tia drew parity with a close-range effort.

Nigeria saw off a tough South African side, thanks to a brace from Asisat Oshoala to ensure Nigeria did not miss the final this time.
