AFCON 2024: CAMEROON ADVANCES TO LAST 16, GHANA KICKED OUT

Cameroon clinched its place in the knockout stage as runner-up in Group C because the five-time champion scored more goals than Guinea, which lost 2-0 to group winner Senegal in the other game.

Christopher Wooh was the last player to score in an extraordinary period of stoppage time as Cameroon eventually defeated Gambia 3-2 to stave off an early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.

Cameroon clinched its place in the knockout stage as runner-up in Group C because the five-time champion scored more goals than Guinea, which lost 2-0 to group winner Senegal in the other game.

Two minutes after Wooh’s goal, Gambia defender Muhammed Sanneh set off wild celebrations when he put the ball in the net but the goal was overturned after a VAR check showed he used his hand.

Gambia put itself in contention for the last 16 by coming from behind to take a 2-1 lead when Ebrima Colley scored with just five minutes of normal time remaining.

Cameroon’s win also eliminated Ghana, which had been hoping to still somehow finish as one of the four best third-place finishers. That’s no longer possible for the Black Stars with just two points.

Ghana missed its chance Monday when it conceded two goals in stoppage time to draw with Mozambique 2-2.
