AFCON Finals: Cameroon 2 – 1 Comoros

Must Read

AFCON Finals: Cameroon 2 – 1 Comoros. Video footage showed football fans struggling to get access to the Paul Biya stadium in a neighbourhood of the capital Yaounde.

Cameroon narrowly beat 10-man Comoros in the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations, in a result that was overshadowed by reports six people have been killed and dozens hurt in a crush outside the stadium.

The stadium has a capacity of 60,000 but because of Covid restrictions it was not meant to be more than 80% full.

The last-16 match between Cameroon and Comoros took place despite the incident and ended with a 2-1 win for the hosts.

Goals from Karl Toko Ekambi and Vincent Aboubakar gave the Indomitable Lions a 2-1 win after Nadjim Abdou’s early red. But Comoros deserve a lot of credit after giving the hosts a tough match.

Youssouf M’Changama scored a stunning free-kick and Chaker Alhadhur, normally a left-back, produced a brilliant performance as stand-in goalkeeper.

Cameroon progress to face The Gambia in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
