The hope of the Senegal Senior Women’s team to qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup has finally been dashed after they lost 4-0 to Haiti in the early hours of Saturday.
Two goals by Roselord Borgella and one each from Kethna Louis and Nerilia Mondesir guided Haiti to victory and they will face Chile on Wednesday to secure one of the three remaining spots.
Haiti took the lead in the 45th minute after defender Louis rose highest to head in a corner kick and Mondesir made it 2-0 in the 55th minute after slotting home a cross from fellow forward Melchie Dumonay.
Borgella scored the third in the 64th minute with a brilliant effort before adding another within two minutes to wrap up the game for Haiti, who are looking to qualify for the Women’s World Cup for the first time.
Cameroon will face Thailand later on Saturday at Waikato Stadium in Hamilton, with the winner due to play Portugal on Wednesday to secure qualification for the ninth Women’s World Cup.
