Indomitable Lionesses forward Nchout Njoya Ajara scored a first half brace to help Atletico Madrid Femenino thrash Levante UD 3-0 to win her first trophy with the Spanish outfit since joining from Valerenga.  

The former Rossiyanka striker who turned 28 last January 12 needed just 28 minutes to open her goal account for her new club on her debut and scored a second goal ten (10) minutes later for a first half brace which helped them to a deserved first half lead. 

Ajara played a pivotal role to ensure her team mate Deyna Castellanos open the scoring barely 18 minutes into the game. 

Nchout Ajara joined Atletico Madrid Femenino from Valerenga in Norway on an 18-month contract becoming the second African to join the Spanish club and the third Cameroonian female footballer in Spain after Raissa Feudjio and Michaela Abam. 

She inspired the Norwegian outfit to a historic domestic double and also finished top scorer of the Women’s Toppserien League and with her former club last season after netting 10 goals.

The 2019 Puskas Award Nominee is undoubtedly a valuable addition to coach Daniel Gonzalez and will prove to be a decisive player in Spain if she continues her prolific form. 

Nigeria’s Rasheedat Ajibade who started the game from the bench and replaced Ajara at the 83rd minute joins her Cameroonian colleague to celebrate her first title at the club.
