The Libyans have picked a last minute 2-1 win over the indomitable Lions to lead their group with four points.


The winning goal came in through a corner, was redirect into the Cameroonian keeper’s net passing through a porous defence at the 92 minute of the encounter.


Though the Lions practically dominated the second half with the Libyans playing a more offensive match, their sporadic attempts were deadly.


Cameroon is second in the group after failing to preserve the 1-1 tie during regular play time.


The Libyans opened the scored in the sixth minute of the encounter through a free kick  that met the head of Libyan attacker who connected the ball into a goal.


The Libyans were energetic from the start and sent in another shot skillfully stopped by Idriss Carlos Kameni within the first ten minutes of the game.


They monopolised the midfield but the Cameroonian equaliser came from another free kick, through Choupo which tempered the match.


The first half saw a porous Lions defence and squandering of scoring opportunities. The lions build up from the defence and midfield to the Lions attack was not functioning.


This is the first defeat and challenge for Coach Denis Lavagne who has to face Guinea Bissau in Yaoundé next week-end.
