Stade Paul Biya / 24.01.2022
What a beautiful, mad, spellbinding game that was. Commiserations to Comoros, who have gone down in AFCON folklore this evening.
Cameroon progress but 10-man Comoros win hearts as left-back stars in goal
End of 2nd Half
FULL TIME - CAMEROON 2-1 COMOROS
Comoros continue to give as good as they get right up until the final whistle, but Cameroon hold on for the win. They will now face Gambia in the quarter-finals, though their opponents deserve to return home as national heroes.
Comoros won't go quietly, but they need to calm it down a bit lest they end up down to nine men here.
THREE CHANGES FOR COMOROS
... with Bachirou, Said Bakari and Mohamed Youssouf swapping out for Ali M'Madi, Moussa Djoumoi and Ibroihim Djoudja.
ANOTHER SWITCH FOR CAMEROON
... Jean Onana coming on for Anguissa.
YELLOW CARD FOR BACHIROU
... seemingly for dissent. Bamlak Tessema Weyesa has been a seriously no-nonsense referee this evening.
Oh my goodness. From the ensuing free kick, M'Changama steps up and whips one into the top corner from 30 yards.
... after scything down Youssouf M'Changama.
Abdallah Ali Mohamed heads down for El Fardou Mohamed Ben Nabouhane, who smashes one on target only for Onana to make his best save of the match.
DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION FOR CAMEROON
... with Toko Ekambi and Aboubakar trading places with James Lea Siliki and Stephane Bahoken respectively.
Karl Toko Ekambi
James Léa Siliki
ANOTHER CHANGE FOR COMOROS
... with Benjaloud Youssouf coming off for Faiz Mattoir.
GOOD SAVE FROM ONANA!
The Cameroon goalkeeper is called into action once again, Abdallah Ali Mohamed forcing him into a save from a tight angle.
COMOROS STILL FIGHTING
Mohamed Youssouf gets forwards and blasts a shot high and wide. Despite everything, or perhaps because of it, Comoros have been great tonight.
Aboubakar wins it for Cameroon, running in behind, deceiving Alhadhur with a clever touch and lashing into the back of the net.
NJIE GOES CLOSE
A decent passing move from Cameroon ends with Njie fizzing a shot just wide of the post.
Toko Ekambi gets in behind and squares for Aboubakar, who smashes one in off the underside of the crossbar. Unfortunately for him, his teammate strayed offside in the build-up and the goal is chalked off.
... Ngamaleu swapping out for Christian Bassogog.
FIRST SUBSTITUTION FOR CAMEROON
... with Choupo-Moting coming off for Clinton Njie.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
CAMEROON STRUGGLING IN ATTACK
... with Comoros' massed defence executing a lionhearted rearguard action. Nouhou gets down the left, but is dispossessed by an inch-perfect tackle from Mohamed Youssouf.
COMOROS GO IN SEARCH OF A GOAL
... with Benjaloud Youssouf latching onto a long ball into the box, only to produce a heavy first touch which allows Onana to intervene. He breaks forwards again a moment later, but drags a weak shot across the face of goal. Comoros look to build some momentum, making their first change of the match. Mogni comes off for Abdallah Ali Mohamed.
