Ajara signs with Sundsvall

The 23-year-old Cameroonian international, Ajara Nchout Njoya has signed a contract with Sundsvall DFF in Swedish Elitettan.

Coming from Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League in the USA, Ajara had an eventful 2015 marked by the debut participation of her national team in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. Ajara featured in all 4 matches at the World Cup scoring against then-defending-champions Japan, and helping Cameroon to qualify for the round of 16 of the competition where they narrowly lost to China.

Prior to the US, Ajara played in top Russian clubs reaching quarterfinals of the 2012-2013 UEFA Women’s Champions League with FC Rossiyanka.
Quick and technical forward, Ajara will look to fulfill her true potential in Sweden as she intends to follow in the footsteps of her international teammate Gaelle Enganamouit who is currently on the books of Swedish champions – FC Rosengård.

Raquel Infante signed with Åland United in Finland. The 25-year-old central defender played in Italian Serie A last season with San Zaccaria before joining Benfica and playing 2015-2016 UEFA Women’s Champions League qualifiers last autumn.

The tall central back has earned 12 caps with Portugal National team. She has arrived in Mariehamn yesterday to join her new teammates for the pre-season training.
With Raquel in the squad, Åland will try to improve their defense, which conceded 33 goals last season, finishing 3rd in the Finnish top flight.

LTA Agency are pleased to announce appointing a new representative in France – Charly Mendo.

Based in the larger Paris area, Charly has been keenly interested in women’s football for the last ten years. Apart from regularly attending hundreds of matches, he has also been actively involved in coaching a third division women’s team in France. He is young, ambitious and passionate about developing new talents and improving the situation of established players in women’s football. Charly speaks several languages including French, Portuguese, Spanish, and English.

Gaelle Enganamouit became the first ever Cameroonian to win Glo-CAF African Women’s Player of the Year Award for 2015.

The prestigious award ceremony held in the Nigerian capital Abuja, marked the end of a great year for African football and featured a number of recognized international stars of past and present including Jay Jay Okocha, Yaya Toure, and the newly crowned African male player of the year – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The award caps a fantastic year for Gaelle, who was the most dominant African player both for her club and country as she led Cameroon to the round of 16 at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. She also became the 2015 best goalscorer of the Swedish top League – Damallsvenskan, helping unfancied Eskilstuna United to second place in the League and automatic qualification to the UEFA Women’s Champions League and earning herself a move to the powerhouse and current Swedish Champions – FC Rosengård in search of Champions League glory.

Gaelle’s Cameroon international teammate, Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene, also represented by LTA, made the final short list of 3 best players in Africa for 2015.

The 20-year old Cameroonian international midfielder Raissa Feudjio signed a contract with a top Finnish outfit Åland United.
Raissa spent last season with another club from Finland Merilappi United, which will make her adaptation easier this time. The young talent has already earned 45 caps with the Cameroon National Team, and has taken part in a number of high level international events including this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, 2012 Olympic Games in London, and a few CAF African Women Championships.

Raissa will join her new club for their pre-season training camp in February. Despite her young age Raissa is a very skillful, intelligent, and experienced player. She will surely increase the stability in the center of Åland’s midfield and will help increase the team’s ball possession percentage as they aim to win 2016 Finland’s women’s premier league – Naisten Liiga.

LTA Agency wish a very good season to Raissa and her new club and good luck.

The Cameroonian striker Gaelle Enganamouit, Cote D’Ivoire’s forward Ines N’Rehy and the Cameroon winger Aboudi Onguene, have all been nominated for CAF Best African Women Player of the Year 2015 Award.

All three players participated in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada with Gaelle and Aboudi leading Cameroon past the group stage in a historic first final tournament appearance. In addition to that, Gaelle completed a great season in Swedish Damallsvenskan helping Eskilstuna United to second in the League and becoming the best goalscorer in Sweden with 18 League goals. The “shooting queen” has recently joined powerhouse and reigning Swedish champions FC Rosengård to wrap up a highly successful 2015.

Aboudi and Ines are teammates at FC Rossiyanka and were key in their club’s runner-up finish in the Russian League this past season to secure Rossiyanka’s automatic qualification to the UEFA Women’s Champions League 2016-2017. The two of them combined for 11 goals in the League with Aboudi providing 6 and Ines contributing with 5 to help the team.

Vero joined her new club last summer from 1. FFC Frankfurt with whom she won one of the most prestigious awards in women’s club football – UEFA Women’s Champions League. Unfortunately, she has been injured since she joined Bayern for pre-season following the World Cup in Canada. Finally, after three months out, she made her official debut last Friday in the League match at Bayer Leverkusen.

Vero came on as a sub in the 71st minute of the game, when the result was 0:3 to Bayern and recorded 20 minutes of action. The match finished 0:5, and after the match Vero was very happy that she played a few minutes after a long time out of competition. Following such a long injury, it’s extremely important to carefully manage her match fitness levels and playing time.

LTA Agency wishes Vero good health and many trophies with FC Bayern.

The quarterfinals draw will be held 27th of November in Nyon, Switzerland, and the other 6 clubs that have qualified for this stage are: Wolfsburg (GER), Slavia Praha (CZE), Lyon (FRA), the reigning champions – FFC Frankfurt (GER), Brescia (ITA), and Barcelona (ESP).

Rosengård’s best performance in Champions League to date was in 2004 when they made it to the semifinals. This time the Swedish champions will add to their fire power upfront the top goal scorer of the past season in Sweden- Gaelle Enganamouit as she will join the club after the New Year.

Caroline Seger will make a remarkable third consecutive appearance in the quarterfinals of the Champions League reaching the finals both in 2014 and 2015, unfortunately missing this year’s final in Berlin due to suspension as PSG succumbed to a narrow defeat to FFC Frankfurt.

The Cote D’Ivoire international won both 2015 Russian Cup and 2015 Russian League in the same season.

Zvezda-2005 Perm defended their Supreme Division title with a 5:0 home victory against Chertanovo on the last day of the season. Nahi joined Zvezda at the beginning of 2014 and won the league in her first year in Russia. This season she added the Russian Cup making it a double.

The second place in the top Russian League was deservedly won by FC Rossiyanka with two LTA players in the squad – Cote D’Ivoire international forward Ines N’Rrehy and Cameroon international winger Gabrielle Aboudi. They finished just two points behind the champions from Zvezda and have earned automatic qualification to the 2016-2017 UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Hedvig Lindahl, Caroline Seger and Gaelle Enganamouit were all recognized for their achievements at the Swedish Football Federation’s annual awards ceremony – Fotbollsgalan 2015.

As expected Gaelle took home the “golden boot” for the best goal scorer in Sweden with her 18 goals in Damallsvenskan, which have helped her team Eskilstuna United to finish second in the League and qualify for the Champions League.

Seger was deservedly named best midfielder of the year. She was excellent in her first season in France as she led Paris Saint-Germain to second in the League, to the UEFA Women’s Champions League final in Berlin, and was named team captain.

The star of the night was Hedvig with her double award for best goalkeeper of the year and most importantly for the best Swedish female player – the “Diamantbollen,” which she has won for the first time in her career. Hedvig has had a remarkable year leading Chelsea FC to a historic double by winning FA Women’s Cup and FA Women’s Super League in her first year in England.
