In a pre-World Cup warm up match, Cameroon looked comfortable and enjoyed more than 60% of the ball possession, and attempted more than 7 shots on target, to beat Macedonia by two goals to zero.
The two beautiful goals were scored by Webo (Who subbed immediately after his bicycle goal due to an injury to his left shoulder) and Choupo ( a rapid turn and shot with his back against the goal). Another chip from Choupou was ruled off side.
Though Finke has some players in the sick bay, Jean Armel Kana Biyik, and Stephane Mbia, his jokers preserved for another match, the first half was a lack-luster show with little attempts to attack from Landry Nguemo and Choupo Mouting.
But the second half was had more steam, Eto’o’s mates came in galvanised and a shot from Fabrice Olinga meet the waiting feet of Webo who transformed it to the first goal and came out with a injury.
Choupo-Moting in his elegant and provocative style posed a real danger to the Macedonian side and was rewarded with a goal in the 84th minute.
It is worth nothing the point blank miss from Idrissou after a nice work and cross from Benjamin Moukanjo on the right side of the midfield.
Eto’o was absent due to injury and has been booked for a to and fro check up with his doctor in Bacelone tomorrow.

Though the 2-0 win is a moral boaster for the Lions, after the 5-bashing against Portugal, Volker Finke’s Squad need to work hard to be more convincing to fans.
The Macedonian team did not pose any serious threats to the Lions because they had no stakes and played as if told not to attack or score.
Cameroon played in an all white jersey, and Eyong Eyong stepped up to captain the Cameroonian national team for the first time in the absence of Samuel Eto’o and Nicolas Nkoulou as substitute.
It should be noted that in line with the appointment of captains by the former Minister of Sports and Physical Education Michel Zoah, Enoh Eyong is the rightful first assistant and not Nicolas Nkoulou and it is Eto’o who developed the habit of giving the captain band to Nkoulou instead.
