The indomitable lions of Cameroon have begun an amazing AFCON campaign after beating Guinea-Bissau 2 – 1 in Ismailia Egypt.
The defending champions got off to a difficult start as their opponents Guinea-Bissau proved not to be as weak as Cameroon may have rated them. The lions dominated the first 45 minutes but unfortunately couldn’t get the goals. They made several attempts to get an opener but their efforts were frustrated by the defensive works of a resilient Guinean side.
The next 45 minutes brought even more pressure on both sides as they each struggled to get the long awaited goal. Well, the gods of football were with the lions of Cameroon as they finally got that opener at the 66th minute when Yaya Banana headed in a well taken corner, giving Cameroon the lead.
It only got better 3 minutes later when Coach Seedorf decision to bring in Stephane Bahoken for Sutchuin Djoum paid off. Bahoken brilliantly netted in Cameroon’s second and last goal at the 69th minute doubling Cameroon’s lead.
Guinea-Bissau made a few attempts to turn things around but failed to break through Cameroon’s defense. It has all ended happily for the lions at Ismailia and they have kept the record; remaining unbeaten in their last seven AFCON matches. Cameroon has also remained unbeaten in all 3 previous encounters against Guinea-Bissau and they have just extended that run tonight with their 2 – 0 win.
Zambo Anguissa of Cameroon was also named man of the man.
Coach Clarence Seedorf and Goalkeeper Andre Onana must be super elated after winning their first ever AFCON match.
Cameroon’s next match comes up on Saturday May 29 against the Black Stars of Ghana. Cameroon would be hoping to pick up all three points against Ghana in order to stretch their unbeaten run. The Black stars on the other hand would be hoping to revenge their 2 – 0 defeat to Cameroon in 2017 at the semifinals of the competition.
