Afcon 2021: Hosts Cameroon see off 10-man Comoros with outfield player in goal

Cameroon celebrate Karl Toko Ekambi's opening strike
Karl Toko Ekambi scored Cameroon’s opener in the 29th minute, with their first effort on target

Cameroon narrowly beat 10-man Comoros in the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations, despite playing against a side with an outfield player in goal.

Goals from Karl Toko Ekambi and Vincent Aboubakar gave the Indomitable Lions a 2-1 win after Nadjim Abdou’s early red.

But Comoros will take the headlines after giving the hosts a massive scare.

Youssouf M’Changama scored a stunning free-kick and Chaker Alhadhur, normally a left-back, produced a brilliant performance as stand-in goalkeeper.

Cameroon progress to face The Gambia in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
