The 16th final of the 2022 Cup of Cameroon draw conducted this Wednesday at the FECAFOOT headquarter in Tsinga has thrown up some intriguing fixtures, and Regional League surorised conquerers of holders PWD in the previous round have 2019 cup Quarter-finalist Colombe to worry about.
The minnows stunned PWD at the Military Stadium and will now face Guy Djiepnang’s Colombe.
Alain Nseme’s Aigle Royal, who knocked out Espoir de Mogode, have been rewarded with a tie against Fondation APEJES.
And Lausanne clash with multiple winners Canon in a center region derby.
Center Region amateur outfit Epta – who secured a famous victory against top tier side Djiko FC to eliminate them in the round of 32 – have been rewarded with a game against previous winners Fovu of Baham.
The winner of wednesday’s round of 32 match between Sims of Bafoussam and Cotonsport of Garoua will face Racing in the next round, while OFTA who recored an emphatic 7-1 win this Wednesday will play 2019 finalist FAP.
Astre tie excites Ndikum Blaise
The players, staff and supporters of 2012 winners YOSA are still pinching themselves after a memorable penalty shoot out victory against 1996 winners Dragon in the previous round to set up a tie with last season runners up Astre.
The celebrations have continued from last weekend, and probably explains why lead trainer Ndikum Blaise is eager for another win this weekend.
Still, there was visible delight in his words and good humour when asked a very simple question – what comments have you on facing the cup vice champions?
“A great team that my team and I respect very much. With a great tactician as coach (Anicet Mbarga Foe) and good quality players.They were league champions of pole A this season and vice champions of the last edition of the cup of Cameroon. They are a force to reckon with. We have played against them this season on two occasiins. We know what they’re capable of doing. We are ready to confront the vice champions of Cameroon.”
Besides the Astre versus YOSA clash, several all-Elite One ties were drawn out of the hat; 2014 finalist Panthere will face 2016 winners – APEJES, YAFOOT play Avion Academy and unfortunate finalist in 2016 Bamboutos FC will be up against Stade Renard who won the coveted trophy in 2019.
