The Scorpions will be taking on captain Vincent Aboubakar and mates at the Japoma stadium in the quarter-finals fixtures.
But the Scorpions showed steely determination to extend their run in Cameroon with another historic result.
Debutants the Gambia booked their place in the quarter-finals at the Nations Cup as Musa Barrow’s net gave them a famous 1 nil edge over Gambia.
Bologna forward Barrow collected a pass and slotted past Aly Keita from the centre of the box in the 71st minute.
The Gambia had continue in a remarkable and unbeaten record by trashing Mauritania and 2004 champions Tunisia. And Tom Saintfiet’s side pulled off another giant-killing in Bafoussam.
