Women’s World Cup: Equatorial Guinea meet Norway

Genoveva-Anonma.jpg
Equatorial Guinea, one of the smallest African countries but surely the fastest in women’s football ascendancy is courting Norway, a traditional powerhouse fallen on less stellar times in a Group D encounter.
The Nzalang Nacionals gained their first ever entry into the Women’s World Cup beating South Africa, 3-1 in the semi-finals of the 2010 Women’s African Championships. They lost to Nigeria 4-2 in the finals but their gutsy performance earned them many kudos.
Here is Genoveva Anonma, the captain of the Nzalang Nacionals who plays for German club Jena unplugging her thoughts about her distinctive cornrows, the death of a close team mate, her elevation as captain at the tender age of 22, and the prospects of this very young team in this World Cup.
