Cameroon 2-1 Gabon: The Indomitable Lions Take Group Lead

By winning their second match against Gabon, The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon took the lead in Group A two matchdays before the end of the qualifiers.

Cameroon already knew that if they managed to win their second match against Gabon in five days, they would make a huge step towards their goal of making it to their sixth World Cup.

And Paul Le Guen's men were very focused against a worthy opponent but they were never threatened by the Panthers. On a scorching hot day, the Ahmadou-Ahidjo stadium was not full but the Cameroonians were not any less motivated by it.

Before the match, Gabon Goalkeeper Didier Ovono made sure to communicate his side's confidence but unfortunately for him a goal by Jean II Makoun in the 23rd minute and one from Samuel Eto'o in the 64th minute annihilated his hopes early on, while Daniel Cousin's goal in extra time came in way too late.

The Cameroonians, already victorious over Gabon on Saturday took the first place from them in Group A with now seven points.

They are followed by Gabon who have six, Togo is third with five points and Morocco is last with three points. The Indomitable Lions will be hosting the Sparrow Hawks of Togo on October 10 and will fly to Morocco for the last match of the qualifiers on November 14.
