Olympique Marseille qualified for the final after beating Dynamo Moscow (Muea, and Bomaka) on penalty shootout 4 goals to 2 in the second semi-final of the Njie Clinton Tourney.
The game had ended 2-2 during the 90mins of play. The match headed to extra time but both teams could not be separated and the game went to penalties.
Neba Denvadis, Nomen Felix, Ntui Derick and Agbor Emmanuel were the scorers for Marseille during the penalty shootout. Neba and Kum scored for Dynamo Moscow but was not enough as his teammates Mamoh Valery and Che Malone missed to see Marseille sailing to the finals.
Dynamo Moscow opened the scoring at the 6th minute of play through a penalty kick from Amih Renzo. Ebong Alain was fouled at the 5mins of play and Renzo, a player with Buea United FC stepped up and converted, to the delight of their fans.
Dynamo mounted the pressure after going one up and succeeded in getting a second goal through Sona Ekobe, a player with Mount Cameroon FC at the 9mins of play.
Ngalame Clovis, a player with Buea United FC had his free-kick saved by goalkeeper Bisah. Olympique Marseille piled up the pressure after cutting the deficit. A beautiful combination from Tangiri Franklin and Ngalame Clovis saw the latter’s shot blocked by the defence of Dynamo Moscow. The pressure was heavy for Dynamo to contain as they conceded a goal.
Tangiri Frankin (a player with YOSA) reduced the deficit for Marseille as he scored the side’s first goal at the 23mins of the game. Dynamo then conceded a penalty as Kum Anthanasius was judged to have handled the ball. Tangiri Franklin stepped up and scored the equalizer, his second goal of the game.
