The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon broke the hearts of Algerians yesterday in the wake of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
It was highly predicted that The Desert Foxes of Algeria would go ahead of Cameroon. This was after they pipped Cameroon by a lone goal in Duoala in the first leg played last Friday.
A late goal in Extra Time by Carl Toko Ekambi was enough to break the hearts of all Algerians. Eric Chupo – Mouting opened the scoring for Cameroon after 22 minutes of play to take the scores to 1-1 on aggregate.
Algeria had the chance to equalize and make the aggregate scores 2-1 at 117 minutes in Extra Time to the eruption of great cheers from the fans. Their joy was cut short at the 124th minute when Ekambi sloted home Aboubakir’s header with just some seconds to end the game.
