Cape Verde stun Cameroon
Cape Verde have caused one of the biggest surprises in recent times with a 2-0 victory over Cameroon in the first leg of their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Praia on Saturday.
The victory is arguably the biggest in the history of the country and confirms the downward spiral of the Indomitable Lions.
There will now surely be a public outcry for the return of Samuel Eto’o, who has just finished an eight-month ban imposed by the Cameroon Football Association, but who refused the call-up for this match due his unhappiness over that incident.
Cape Verde’s goals came via Ricardo, who netted midway through the first half, and Djaniny, who added a second just past the hour-mark.
All is not lost for Cameroon, they have the home leg of the tie to come next month, but they will have to put in a considerably improved performance from the lackluster display of Saturday.
