The Intermediate Lions of Cameroon came from one down to defeat Djibouti, in the first of two friendlies – today at the Yaounde Omnisports stadium.
It was a goal fest in the first segment, with Djibouti first getting the better of Cameroon.
The visitors first opened scores with Doualem Mahamoud, before two goals in quick succession from Basile Yamkam and Francis Elimbi, changed the game’s narrative.
After recording two assists in the den, Yamkam was the most unlikeliest of goalscorers on the day for team Cameroon.
Francis Elimbi struck before the end of the first half to seal the deal. That was the Stade Renard forward’s second in his first camping session.
A second half filled with caution; each team fearing the other’s strike power, the two teams kind of settled for the 2-1 score, Djibouti quitting to fight another day
The reversed fixture for coach Martin Ndtongou Mpile and lads still in Cameroon, comes up on thursday, November 12, 2020.
