Gaelle Enganamouit, known as one of the best African footballers, has decided to hang up her boots. Last Tuesday, the 9th of June, the international star announced her retirement from professional football.

Enganamouit has been without a club since April 2019, when she ended her contract with Malaga in Spain. And even though she had a knee injury that has handicapped her for 3 years affecting her playing time and performances, she is still only 28 years old, which is pretty young to think about retirement from the football world.

Of course, Women’s football fans got a little bit shocked by her decision.

She became famous back in 2012, when she still played for Spartak Subotica, from Serbia. There, she scored the fastest goal in Women’s Football history. It took her only two seconds to score the goal, which was impressive.

Another great mark she reached was the three goals scored in the 6-0 win of her National Team against Ecuador. With that, the untamed lioness as she is called by the first African to score three goals in a Women’s World Cup match, back in 2015. That same year, she was the top scorer of the Damallsvenskan League (the Women’s League in Sweden) with 18 goals.

The African women’s football legend also won the 2015 African Player of the Year award. In addition, she was nominated for the BBC Women’s Player of the Year award in 2016.

During her career, she participated in 19 seasons and played more than 700 matches. The striker was an important member of the Cameroonian Women’s Football Team, being in the squad since 2010. She was part of the squad on the last Women’s World Cup, in France. However, due to a knee injury, she didn’t participate in any of the matches.

So, on June the 9th, Gaelle Enganamouit posted on her social media talking about her 28th birthday and announcing the end of her career with a simple “End, thank you all”.
