AFCON 2019 didn’t go well for the defending champions Cameroon as they lost to Nigeria in a five-goal thriller in the Round of 16.
The 2017 AFCON champions weren’t looking good in the group stages with only one win and two draws, but the passion and desire for the gold made them come back in the game against Nigeria which unfortunately they couldn’t maintain for much longer.
The first goal came from the side of Nigeria which took the gold away from Cameroon’s for a while; but when the 40th-minute clock ticked, Cameroon’s luck came into place as they scored not only the equalizer but also the second goal from their side turning a 0-1 to a 2-1.
Though the Untamable Lions went into the second half one ahead, the 60th-minute mark tamed and snatched the cup away from them with the same three minutes of two goals but this time from the Nigerian side making it a 2-3.
Unfortunately for the Cameroon fans, their team couldn’t turn the game around and lost their way out of the AFCON 2019; which therefore promises a new winner this time around.
