Cameroon – 2019 AfCON: The game and the players’ scores on 10

Written by Deckson N.

The Indomitable Lions rarely suffered against the Atlas Lions this Saturday in Yaounde, on the first day of the qualifiers of the AfCON 2019. If Aboubakar scored, while Fabrice Ondoa ensured in the goals, well defended by the Ngadeu-Teikeu pair, some players like Benjamin Moukandjo have shone by their invisibility.

Fabrice Ondoa: 6.5/10

Rarely solicited by Moroccan strikers facing the Cameroon defense, the goalkeeper of the Lions reacted well every time the opposing strikes reached him. With a nice quality of relaxation, he saved his camp on the two Moroccan actions (57th, 89th).

Fai Collins: 6.5/10

Defensively, the right back realized a serious match with particularly valuable interventions.
Left again after leaving Oyongo, he won several duels and was also represented by crosses that unfortunately did not always find customers.

Ambroise Oyongo: not rated

Injured from the 17th, the left back of the Indomitable Lions had to give way to Ernes Maboukar. He is absent to the Confederations Cup.

Adolphe Teikeu: 6/10

Back from injury, the Sochaux player did not hesitate to put his foot wherever the danger presented itself. Sharp in the duels, he cleared good balls, allowing his goalkeeper to spend a quiet afternoon.

Michaël Ngadeu: 6.5/10

Always equal to himself, the champion of the Czech Republic was precious. Physical in the duels, he caused enormous difficulties to the attackers as well in the air as on the ground. A good game of his part.

Ernest Mabouka: 3/10

Entered to replace Ambroise Oyongo (30th), he was the worst Cameroonian player of the match. Beaten in all the duels, he pulled out his tongue, shining in passes to the opponents and an inability to make the slightest cross.

Arnaud Djoum: 6/10

A little erased at the beginning of the encounter, the Cameroonian midfield had difficulty to impose himself in the game. We had to wait a little to see him spread his qualities as a relayer. Very available, he hurt his opponents with his physical strength.

Sébastien Siani: 6/10

Like Arnaud Djoum, there was little to the recovery. Physically in place, he defended rather well, without taking too much risk.

André-Frank Zambo Anguissa: 6.5/10

Nice activity of the Marseillais. Omnipresent in the midfield, he raked up balls that could have proved dangerous, his work to recovery has allowed his team to move up a notch higher. A good match from him. He is replaced at the 75th by Mandjeck (not rated).

Vincent Aboubakar: 6/10

He is the hero of the evening. Stronger than Feddal, which he got rid of in a one-on-one duel before scoring the Lions’ victorious goal, the Besiktas player then struggled to hurt the opposing defense. Without that goal, he would have completely missed out on his game.

Benjamin Moukandjo: 3/10

It was hard to imagine what was going on in the head of the Lions captain this afternoon. Totally invisible, the Lorientais crossed the encounter as a shadow. He gave way to the 80th in Boumal (not rated).

Christian Bassogog: 5/10

Still alive in the right corridor, the Cameroonian winger shook the Moroccans all along the line. He could have scored a goal if the opposing goalkeeper had not made this extraordinary catch. He fishes by his individuality for bad choices at times when Aboubakar was waiting for the ball.
