After the Ivory Coast club's striker Jacque Haman was sent off in the 38th minute, the Cameroon side stepped up a gear to play an offensive game. The Ivorians visibly played for a draw, contented in defending.
The lone goal came in at the 58th minute by Alexis Yougouda who pounced on a loose ball in the penalty box by goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo of Sewe Sport.
A late rally by Sewe proved unproductive as Coton held firm in the last quarter of the match to register its first victory in the group stages. This promises to be a tight group where all four contenders have each registered a victory and a defeat after two match days of play.
Originally to be played on July 20th, this encounter was rescheduled due to Fifa's initial suspension of Cameroon.
