Alain Djeumfa has been appointed as the new head coach of Cameroon’s Women Football team by Cameroon's Football Federation (Fecafoot) this coming just four months before the start of the World Cup in France.
Djeumfa comes in place of Joseph Ndoko who steered the Indomitable Lionesses to a third-place finish at the Women' Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana last month, sealing their place at France 2019.
Djeumfa told the BBC on his appointment: "I feel honored with the appointment and I'm aware there is a daunting task ahead with the World Cup in France fast approaching. We are starting work immediately and we need to have a great preparation ahead of the France event. We want to do better than in 2015 and we think we have what it takes to succeed."
Cameroon will face Canada, New Zealand and the Netherlands in Group E at their second World Cup, which will be played in France from 7 June to 7 July; the team having reached the last 16, losing 1-0 to China four years ago in the same competition.
Djeumfa, who was Cameroon's fitness coach in Ghana, has previously led several top tier sides in the country - amongst them New stars of Douala, Botafogo of Douala and Aigle of Menoua.
Fecafoot is currently in talks with various federations, including the Norway FA, to organize friendly internationals before the World Cup.
46-year-old Djeumfa will be assisted by former Lionesses' skipper, Bernadette Anong.
