Cameroon beat Mali 1-0 to occupy the 2nd position of Group A behind Egypt. The Cameroonians were visibly satisfied with the scoreline admitting their performance wasn’t the best on the pitch but what was essential was to grab the 3 points that draws them closer to the semifinals of the competition.
Rigobert Song, Cameroon coach
“We did not have the match we were hoping for but the main thing was done, that is, winning against Mali. “The first qualification goal to reach the semifinals has not been reached yet. We must remain focused against Egypt.”
Samuel Oum Gwet, Cameroon U23 team captain
“Good play was not part of us but it wasn’t today’s objective. We played a good game in the first game, but we didn’t win. Today we just played for the three points not withstanding the style, the objective has been attained”,
