The boys of coach Ousmanou Christophe have been spotted at the Nsimalen international airport – Yaounde, as the team finally arrived after roaming in Mauritania for an extra six days, though, knocked out of the Under-20 tourney by finalists Ghana on February 25.
The team arrived at exactly 12:54 through Air Maroc in one piece, a source told mysoccer24.com.
Cameroon gave a quite decent account of themselves though failing to make it through to the penultimate stages of the competition.
The lads defeated hosts Mauritania through the slimmest of margins (1-0), same with Uganda, all through goals from Junior Sunday, before walking through Mozambique (4-1), in the last of 3 group games.
Despite winning her group in style, Cameroon wasn’t able to get passed a tricky Ghana side. The Under 20 Lions drew first blood in the quarterfinals through Kevin Prince Milla, but lack of concentration saw Ghana equalise and eventually win 4-2 on penalties.
Gambia will play Tunisia for silver this Thursday, while Ghana pits Uganda on Saturday, March 6, for gold.
Cameroon’s tournament record;
Goals scored: 7
Goals Conceded: 2
Top scorers: Jang Sunday – 2 goals, Etienne Eto’o – 2 goals, Kevin Prince Milla – 2 goals.
