With a tenacious drive and powerful speed in attack, Gaëlle was known as the ‘Freight Train’ by fans at the 2015 World Cup. Earlier this year, she founded Cameroon’s first ever football academy for girls, demonstrative of her commitment to raising the profile of the women’s game in Africa. Gaëlle’s trademark celebration is a nod towards the Cameroon women’s team nickname - “The Indomitable Lionesses”.
