Lausanne Football Club has defeated Ecole Football Brasseries du Cameroun 2-0 in the last day of play in the National Interpools, a victory that sees the side qualify for the Elite 2 football championship for next football season based on a better disciplinary record as they picked up no yellow card compared to Les Amis’ three.

Lausanne certainly showed their class in the game, forcing EFBC to make a series of errors while winning most of the duels. The side with their strong and physically build players took control of the middle of the park and made Brasseries spend huge energy searching for the ball. Both sides could not change their present situation and the game entered the first half break with Lausanne leading EFBC 1-0.
In the second half of the play, Coach Stephen Oben Ojong brought in Arsene Ulrich, Jordan Ajuah and Michel Franck for some fresh impetus in the encounter. These changes employed seemed to have motivated the side who pushed forward more than they did in the first half with several goal scoring chances created.
