  1. DISQUALIFY CAMEROON HOW CAN A GUEST HUMILIATE THE HOST 8 – 1? VISITORS MUST ALWAYS BE HUMBLE, TO SHEPOLOPOLO A WIN OVER LESOTHOIS NOTHING COS. LESOTHO IS A SMLL PROVINCE IN SA, CONCENTRATE ON KAMELUN AND MAZAMBIKI. I SUGGEST JOURNALIST WHEN REPROTING WOMEN SOCCER SHOULD JUST STATE THE SCORELINE, NO COMMENTARIES, THEY LOOK FUNNY WITH LADIES NAMES
