Gaelle Enganamouit has been included in Cameroon's squad for the 2019 Women's World Cup despite concerns about her fitness.

The 2015 African Women's Footballer of the Year was expected to miss the tournament, having been without a club following the termination of her contract with Spanish side Malaga in April.
