Augustine Ejangue

Augustine Silvia Ejangue Siliki (born 19 January 1989) is a Cameroonian footballer who plays as a defender for Norwegian club Arna-Bjørnar and the Cameroon women's national team. She previously played for Energiya Voronezh and WFC Rossiyanka of the Russian Top League[3][4] and for Danish Elitedivisionen club Fortuna Hjørring. She is a member of the Cameroonian national team, who she represented at the 2012 Summer Olympics and the 2015 and 2019 editions of the FIFA Women's World Cup.[5]

A Russian-speaking agent secured Ejangue and compatriot Ajara Nchout a lucrative transfer to Energiya Voronezh in 2011. But her time in Russia was interrupted by illness when she contracted malaria while back in Cameroon on national team duty.[6]

Ejangue had signed for Swedish club Tyresö FF when they suffered a financial implosion and withdrew from the 2014 Damallsvenskan season, expunging all their results and making all their players free agents. She moved on to finish the season with Amazon Grimstad of the Norwegian Toppserien.[7] In February 2015 Ejangue agreed a two-year contract with another Scandinavian club, Fortuna Hjørring.[8] In summer 2017 she moved to Spain and signed for Santa Teresa CD.[9]

At the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, Cameroon faced England in the last sixteen stage. Ejangue's back-pass to her goalkeeper conceded the indirect free kick from which England took the lead. She spat on Toni Duggan in the immediate aftermath, one of several controversies during Cameroon's 0–3 defeat.[10]
