The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon has qualified for the 2017 African Cup of Nations, AFCON scheduled to take place in Gabon next year.
Salli Edgar’s strike at the 31th minutes gave Cameroon the qualification ticket as the lions beat 10 man Mourabitounes 1-0 in Nouakchott to top Group M with 10 points.
The start of the game saw the two selections going too fast with the ball but no one coming to effectively preserve the leather.
After the break, the Mourabitounes created several dangerous chances, but attempts from Boubacar Gueye, Abdoulaye Bagili produced no good results.
The Cameroonian defensive block with Teikeu Adoplh was very useful in duels coupled with an outstanding performance and saving parades from goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa who finally put his teammates in the shelter.
Certainly there seemed to be no way for Cameroon in the second half, the end had to justify the means as the lone goal qualified Cameroon for the 2017 AFCON in Gabon.
Speaking to Lions4life shortly after the match, fans and well-wishers of the lion’s complaint of porous defense as well as lack of attackers to deliver the goods.
After four matches at the helm of the lions, Hugo Broos seems to have mastered his squad as he has a balance sheet of two draws, one defeat and one victory
