Tanzania will play in the U17 Women's World Cup for the first time in its history thanks to Clara Luvanga. The latter has scored 10 goals. She is also the top scorer in the qualifiers.
Clara Luvanga has qualified Tanzania for the U17 Women's World Cup for the first time in its history. Luvanga's performance was particularly impressive. She finished as the top scorer in the qualifiers with 10 goals. With 21 goals, Tanzania has the second best attack behind Morocco (23 goals) and ahead of Nigeria (15 goals).
But Clara Luvanga will have drawn attention after her XXL match against Cameroon. She scored four goals to seal Tanzania's victory in the first leg of the fourth and final round of the U17 Women's World Cup qualifiers. She was the only one to defeat the Indomitable Lionesses at home (4-1). The Cameroonian team had not digested this defeat at all. Clara Luvanga was even under fire after this match. The Cameroonians felt that the Tanzanian did not look like a girl... This information quickly went viral on the Cameroonian web. "The Cameroonian team refused to enter the field, saying I was a man, whereas the Cameroonian experts knew she was a woman," the player reveals.
Cameroon was Clara Luvanga's latest victim. She was decisive during the qualifiers. She scored a five-goal haul against Botswana (7-0) in the second round and a double against Burundi (4-0) in the third round. The Serengeti Girls striker is hoping to lead her country to the World Cup, which will be held from 11 to 30 October 2022 in India. The draw is scheduled for 24 June 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland.
