World 2022 (Q): carried by Choupo-Moting, Cameroon clings to Côte d’Ivoire

Group D of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers is still undecided! A few hours after the victory of Côte d’Ivoire against Malawi (3-0), Cameroon made sure to stay in the race by disposing of Mozambique (3-1) this Friday at the Stade de Japoma on the occasion of the third day to return to a point behind the Ivorian leader.

A month after their defeat against the Elephants (2-1), the Indomitable Lions took the lead through a Choupo-Moting head (1-0, 28 th ). But Toni Conceição’s men then trembled on a big failure and it took a hand fault from the Mozambican goalkeeper on a corner hit by Ngamaleu to allow the Bayern Munich striker to offer himself a brace by putting his own to away after the break (2-0, 52 th ).

Lyonnais Toko-Ekambi quickly drove the nail (63 th ) on the second assist from the evening to Ngamaleu but Angevin Bahoken then missed the 4-0 from close range, which allowed the Mambas exploit a ball loss to reduce the score by Catamo (80 th ). Monday return match in Tangier, Morocco.

The ranking: Ivory Coast 7 points, Cameroon 6 pts, Malawi 3 pts, Mozambique 1 pt
