​AFCON: Cameroon into last-eight after beating Comoros

Cameroon are through into the quarter finals of the African Cup of Nations.

The hosts and favourites for the tournament had to work very hard against minnows Comoros.

Despite Comoros not having a specialist goalkeeper in the team due to COVID-19 protocols, Cameroon could only manage two goals in the game.

Comoros were further hit by captain Nadjim Abdou getting an early red card.

Cameroon took control with goals from Karl Toko Ekambi and Vincent Aboubakar either side of half time.

Comoros got a late consolation through a stunning Youssouf M'Changama free kick, but it was too little too late.
