In the Cameroon league 1, While most fans take delight in the glory that covers goalscoring, and rightly so, goalkeepers do their part in-between the sticks and gain points for their teams courtesy saves and clean sheets.

After 3 match days here are the most dominant goalkeepers in the Cameroon professional league;

Souleman Souleman *2

The Cameroon under-23 shot stopper missed out on the league opener but since having made his comeback, the former Bang Bullet FC goalkeeper has kept 2 successive clean sheets against Avion Academy and TKC.

Goals conceded -0.

Anye Derick *2

Having made his return during the October transfer window from Al Shoula club, Anye Derick has been brilliant in the early stages of the Cameroon league 1 with scintillating performances against Apejes on the opening match day, and equally against Cotonsport on match day 3.

Goals conceded -0.

Descharles Cherry Minko *2

AS Fortuna are known for their resilience at the back, and, Descharles Minko has gone ahead to make his backline almost invincible. The goalkeeper has kept a clean sheet against that dreaded Bamboutos attack and Stade Renard of Melong.

Two goals against Colombe

Yindui Mohamed (Dragon)
