2019 AFCON: Cameroon remain top even after sharing spoils with Ghana.

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon lead group F with four points after a stalemate (0-0) day-2 AFCON game with the Black Stars of Ghana.

 

Ghana remain winless at the Africa Cup of Nations after they were held to a goaless game by Group F leaders Cameroon at the Ismailia Stadium.

The match was not only a clash of the titans but the biggest showdown of superiors in African football.

Ghana could have made history if they defeated Cameroon but Clarence Seedorf’s boys were the dangerous side in the game.

Cameroon came closer but failed to score on three very good occasions.

 

 

Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah was one of the few players to distinguish himself, making three key interventions to prevent a Cameroon goal.

At the 74th minute, Captain Choupo Moting and Stephane Bahoken made their way into the turf as substitutes to Gaetan Bong and Karl Toko Ekambi.

 

 

Ghana in turn brought in the football star, Asamoah Gyan who completely twisted the Game in favour of Ghana

At the last 13 minutes,   Ghana nearly snatched the points when Kwabena Owusu intercepted a wayward pass, charged forward and fired a ferocious shot against the bar.

Apart from the fact that Ghana failed again to avenge the troubling times Cameroon has given her, the two sides served up a feast of misplaced passes, poor first touches and wayward finishing.

The historic meeting between the African football giants was expected to create fire storms but it ended up more of a show to the fans.

 

 

Just to recall that this clash pulled media men from other host cities and the world as many wanted to live the story for their audiences.

Cameroon had a massive influx of fans who travelled some 200kms to come and support their team

At the end, Cameroon stays shaky at the top of the group with four points from two games, while Ghana  two points after drawing both their matches.

 

Kwesi Appiah’s side will be under pressure when they face Guinea-Bissau on Tuesday 2nd July in their final group game.

The 2017 AFCON Champions, Cameroon is in pole position to qualify for the last 16 and face Benin on the same day.

The Squirrels of Benin also has two points in two games and the Djurtus at the tail with a single point
