The special lions of Cameroon have recorded their first win in the ongoing African Cup of Nations for Amputees in Tanzania.
Played this Sunday November 28, 2021 at the MKAPA Stadium, coach Mankwa Donald and boys used early game energy to secure all three points despite Gambia’s determination.
Nkam Elvis scored the opener for Cameroon while Sehou Bouba scored a Brace to give Cameroon the lead.
A good day it turned out to be for the Special Lions of Cameroon out there in Tanzania. At kickoff, both teams found it difficult settling on the wet pitch after heavy rain stormed the MKAPA Stadium.
Counting on a wealth of experience gotten from Angola in 2019, coach Mankwa Donald’s boys mounted more pressure dominanting most of the game time.
Best player of Cameroon Amputee National Football league Nkam Elvis aka “Vishow” gave the first goal of the encounter putting Cameroon ahead.
The center referee did not with hold distributing yellow cards to both teams with Nkam Elvis not an exception.
In six minutes, Sehou Bouba scored two goals to put the scoreboard at 3#0 in favour of Cameroon. The three goals encouraged Gambia to retaliate seeking for a goal but the bravery of Aboubakar Shaibu stopped all attempts before the end of the first half.
Gambia’s efforts for a goal materialized upon arrival for the second half of the game when they found the back of the net by passing goalkeeper Aboubakar Shaibu.
That not being effort, their dominance once became evident as the team scored its second goal keeping their hopes of an equalizer up.
At full time Cameroon lead by 3#2.
They now top pool C with three points while Liberia and Gambia follow suit with no point yet.
The special lions of Cameroon will next face Liberia in the group stage games of Group C.
