Cameroon striker Ajara Nchout has shifted focus to the Tokyo Olympic Games playoff against Chile after they were knocked out the African Women's qualifiers by Zambia on Tuesday.
The 2012 London participants were knocked out by their Southern African opponents on away goals despite a 3-2 first leg win in Yaounde following a 2-1 second leg defeat in Lusaka.
The Central Africans will be hoping to avoid missing the global showpiece for the second time on the bounce after they missed Rio 2016 at the expense of Zimbabwe.
