Cameroon thrash Comoros to qualify for 2019 Afcon

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon have qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after defeating Comoros three nil on Saturday at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium.

Goals from skipper Eric Maxime Choupo Moting, Christian Bassogo and substitute Clinton Njie sealed Cameroon’s spot for the showppiece in Egypt later this year.

The Indomitable Lions needed just a point to qualify for the competition and started on the front foot infront of their home fans as the visitors looked to soak up the pressure.

Cameroon’s dominance and perseverance paid off six minutes before the break when Joel Tagueu and Zambo Anguissa combined at the edge of the box before laying off Choupo Moting at the far post for a tap in.- the PSG forward scoring in cosecutive home games in the qualifiers.

Cameroon came out of the second half with the same attacking intent and soon doubled their advantage when Zambo Anguissa did well to shield the ball at the edge of the Comoros defence before playing on Bassogog who driftd on his left football before unleashing a strike that beat the Comoros goalkeeper.

Any resistance from the visitors was killed off in the dying minutes of the game when Clinton Njie played through on goal beating his marker and floored the Comoros ‘keeper before passing into the net to round off an emphatic victory for the Indomitable Lions- the biggest win so far since Clarence Seedorf took over.
