Cameroon survived Comoros scare to book a place in the quarterfinals where they will face Gambia.
The hosts struggled to stump authority against the debutants who used defender Chaker Alhadhur as a goalkeeper and were also dealt with a huge blow when Nadjim Abdou was sent off in the seventh minute of the game.
Karl Toko Ekambi scored from close range in a well worked goal before Vincent Aboubaker continued with his exploits in the tournament to give the Indomitable Lions a breather in the second stanza.
But Comoros, who won hearts of many after a commendable performance, made their statement with a goal through a beautiful freekick from Youssouf M’changama later on.
Cameroon will be well aware that this is not a performance befitting of a title contender and will surely face stronger challenge ahead.
Gambia, Cameroon’s next opponent in Saturday’s quarterfinal, eliminated Guinea thanks Musa Barrow’s goal in a match played at the Omnisport Stadium.
