Cameroon overthrows Burkina Faso and climbs to the 3rd step of the podium


Kinshasa, February 7th, 2022 (CPA)..- The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon overthrew the Stallions of Burkina Faso by winning by 5 shots on goal to 4 and climbed on the 3rd step of the podium, Saturday at the Olembé stadium, in Yaoundé, during of the small final of the 33rd African Cup of Nations (CAN) football.

The Stallions also inspired to overcome the Indomitable Lions In a well harmonized score, at the conclusion of an aerial cross from the right, Steeve Yago (24th), with a resumption of the left, burns politeness to André Onana, the Cameroonian goalkeeper, 1-0. On this momentum, Burkina Faso, who redoubled their energy, saw their efforts crowned with success two minutes from the break by doubling the bet on an own goal from Cameroonian defender Jean Onana. He therefore leads by 2-0 on the scoreboard.

While we were waiting for an awakening from Cameroon, it is rather the machine of the country of honest men, which is running at full speed. This, despite the double rise of Vincent Aboubakar and Moumi Ngamaleu (46th), dropped on the battlefield by their mentor, Toni Conceiçao, who will also launch Karl Toko Ekambi, a little later, for more tone. Far from shaking Burkina Faso, this change activates the Stallions more.

Thus, on a cross from Bertrand Traoré on the left flank, the ball from his try landed on the scalp of Djibril Ouattara (49th), who, in a diving position, crucified point-blank André Onana at bay and unable to prevent the 3rd realization of Burkina Faso. It’s a crushing blow that the Indomitable Lions receive as much as their dumbfounded public, hitherto unaware of what the final verdict of the game will be. An anesthetic partition of Burkinabè At 3-0, the Stallions of Burkina Faso played their anesthetic score well for the Indomitable Lions, who avoided an irreversible coma after the changes made in the ranks of the Cameroonians, who will go from death to life in a few fractions of minutes.

In the blink of an eye and aware of a humiliation in sight, Cameroon is pushing to change its destiny. Stéphane Bahoken (71st) reduced the score with a recovery following a mess in the fatal Burkinabè surface. Vincent Aboubakar (85th) follows him on a whim and takes the score to 3-2 for the Stallions with a header, synonymous with his 7th personal goal in this competition, before doing it again two minutes later at following a corner kick. Aboubakar took advantage of a missed outing by Farid Ouédraogo, the Burkinabe goalkeeper, to make the comeback (3-3), thus signing his 8th goal of the 33rd AFCON.

Burkina Faso allergic to remontadas It is truly a Cameroonian comeback that exhumes the collective memory of Burkina Faso for another image of the genre, in 1998, to the credit of the Leopards of the DR Congo (4-4) against the same Stallions at home. They ended up losing on penalties. CPA/
