At the Comoros, the association had announced on Saturday that a total of twelve people in the team and caregivers were positively tested on the coronavirus, including not only coaches Amir About, but also the two goalkeepers Riyadh Sussex and Ali Ahumada. Stated Forward Salem Ben BOINC had hurt his shoulder at the victory over Ghana and fell out. Ahumada was negatively tested on Monday morning, but was still not allowed to play. Thus, no keeper was more in the squad. It had to be improvised – and so the 1.72-meter left-back Shaker Alachua in the secondary finale against host Cameroon in the box.

Comoros in Night – Too Bambi meets

Of course, the roles were even more clearly distributed than anyway, Cameroon was the Turmoil Favorite. And as if there were already enough stones in the way of the Underdog, there was a fatigue after seven minutes: after a foul of About on the Cameroon Ngamaleeu registered, the Var reported, whereupon referee Ballad Tessa Walesa looked at the scene again and took the Britt of the scene From behind on the foot smooth red bucket.

With a man less, the component did not do it bad. Auskhilfskeeper Alachua did not have to intervene for a long time. Cameroon exuded no shine in the offensive – but was still in the lead: after a ball loss of the outsider, it was fast, ended at the end Toko-Ekambi flat left below (29.). The answer of the decimated component would almost follow on the foot, but Oneida was twice class on the post (33.). The bottom line was a weak, under these circumstances, very disappointing first half of the clearly favored hosts, which came to a good chance and led to the break with 1: 0.

Cameroon gets better – Aboubacar puts on 2: 0

In the second half, Cameroon then showed a better face – and quickly came to some chances: Aboubacar’s header was too central (49.), Toko-Ekambi shot next to it (52nd), and a double opportunity of Aboubacar and Natalie was able to become a hospital Keeper Alachua distinguish (55.). The Comoros also appeared in the offensive, but the very thick scorching did not jump out. The favorite for Bavaria striker Choupo-Moting was compelling, Aboubacar’s way of exit, but not (65.), and Bassoon hit only the outer post (67.). A little later, it was so far, Aboubacar scored from a short distance that deserved 2: 0 (70th).

M’Changsha’s fantastic free kick is not enough

It looked all about the decision, but the Comoros showed a lot of heart and still bravely played forward. El Pardon Ben had left a huge chance (79th, failed on Oneida), but in the 81st minute it was only 1: 2: M’Changsha put a free kick from a large distance dreamy left in the upper left corner. An extension would have been a sensation in this constellation.

Because the Comoran but not a mandatory chance came more, Cameroon ultimately prevailed highly deserved 2-1, although the hosts did not fight fame. On Saturday (5 pm) you will meet in the quarterfinals on the Gambia, which won 1-0 against Guinea.
