Cameroon’s Amputee National football team have won the fair-play trophy at the 5th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations in Amputee football.
The 2019 Amputee continental soccer extravaganza was staged between October 1-14, 2019 in Angola.
The Lions who were in their maiden afcon spell found little joy against tough opposition but were able to clinch a 1-0 win against Liberia finishing 5th out of 6 participating nations.
Cameroon lost to World Champions and tournament host Angola 6-1 in their opening game and fell to Nigeria and Sierra Leone 2-1 and 2-0 respectively to crash out of the race for gold.
Despite their balance sheet, team Cameroon have expressed excitement and gratitude promising to improve upon in future competitions.
“I feel so happy to have participated at the African Cup of Nations for Amputee football. We successfully represented our country and lifted high the name and flag of Cameroon with the fair play trophy. We played against nations who have taken part in Amputee football for over 20 years whereas we played as a team for just 4 months and won one game”
“Amputee football is the future of football in the world. It brings joy, hopes and unites people together”
Angola beat Nigeria 2-0 to clinch the 2019 Amputee AFCON, their first major trophy since winning the World Cup in Amputee football.
The Cameroon Amputee National team is expected to return to the Country on October 17,2019.
