Gaëlle Deborah Enganamouit (born 9 June 1992) is a Cameroonian footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Málaga CF and the Cameroon women’s national team.
Enganamouit previously played in the Serbian First League for Spartak Subotica, for whom she appeared in the UEFA Champions League. While playing for Spartak Enganamouit reportedly scored the fastest goal in women’s football history, after two seconds.
In December 2013, Enganamouit announced her transfer to Swedish football, with newly promoted Damallsvenskan team Eskilstuna United.
League champions FC Rosengård signed Enganamouit to a two-year contract in November 2015, as a replacement for Anja Mittag. Enganamouit had been the 2015 Damallsvenskan top goalscorer with 18 goals as Eskilstuna finished second after mounting an unlikely title challenge. She was nominated for the BBC Women’s footballer of the year award in early 2016, alongside Amandine Henry, Kim Little, Carli Lloyd and Becky Sauerbrunn.
On the opening day of the season, Enganamouit suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury which was expected to rule her out for the entire 2016 campaign.
On 11 February 2017, Dalian Quanjian F.C. officially signed Enganamouit.
She is a member of the Cameroonian national team and played at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She appeared in each game as a substitute; Cameroon lost each match.
At the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada she scored a hat-trick in Cameroon’s 6–0 win over Ecuador. During the 2015 World Cup game against defending champions Japan, her unnerving drive and powerful style lead to her being known as the “Freight Train” by Canadian fans.
