Guinea has proven to be a worthwhile team, while Cameroon has performed poorly. However, Cameroon will be facing a disadvantage with only 10 players, so let’s see how they fare in the remaining game.
The player did not actually make a good move. He quickly turns towards the goal and Koné makes a successful catch.
In the 45th minute, Cameroon has a free-kick near the left corner of the box. Will N’Koudou be able to make a good delivery this time?
He might’ve accidentally perpetrated the heel-trample, I guess, but there was no chance he was getting away with that, and his mates will now have to defend their lead with 10 men.
After 45 minutes, he continues to look repeatedly. I am uncertain of the reason for his multiple attempts.
After 45 minutes of play, Magri was given a yellow card for fouling Kamano. In response, Kamano has now received a yellow card for fouling Magri. This is quite upsetting. Kamano’s foul was particularly vicious, as he stepped on Magri’s Achilles tendon – an action that typically results in a red card. To make matters worse, he also landed on Magri’s other ankle with his other foot. The referee has decided to use VAR to review the incident.
We will have an additional four minutes.
After spending 45 minutes looking for an Eto’o jersey, I stumbled upon this!
After 43 minutes, N’Koudou separates from Conte, confronts him, and crosses the boundary line. As expected.
Cameroon carelessly loses possession in the center of the field and Moriba takes control of the ball. Wooh quickly fouls him, but somehow avoids receiving a booking. This brings to mind that Magri was previously booked, although I did not make a note of it.
Samuel Eto’o, the leader of the Cameroon Football Association, has been spotted wearing a unique shirt with a collar that does not fold. Meanwhile, there is a temporary pause in the game as Ekambi accidentally hit Diakhaby with his elbow, but he is expected to recover.
After 39 minutes, Cameroon has improved their gameplay with Kemen making a strong run through the midfield. He passes to Magri on the right, but his cross is overhit and goes beyond the back post.
After 38 minutes, Cameroon earns a corner kick. Ntcham takes a strong shot but it gets blocked. N’koudo then delivers a better cross, but it still results in a goal kick.
After 37 minutes, Kemen made an excellent move by sliding toward Anguissa, but Diakhaby quickly and accurately tackled him, causing a crunching impact.
In 36 minutes, Kone arrived early to claim and he was unable to.
After 35 minutes, N’Koudou moves towards the right side and Guilavogui pushes him, resulting in the bigger players moving forward from the defense. Will the former Tottenham player be able to make a better pass this time?
I am certain that I am not the only individual who is reminded of this particular scene whenever we encounter the word “cooling” being used as a verb.
We will proceed once more in 33 minutes.
After 31 minutes, it’s time to take a break and cool down.
After 30 minutes, the team is beginning to have more control of the ball. As I am typing, Magri blocks a pass from the opposing team’s defense. However, he is unable to assist Ekambi in scoring. Guinea takes advantage of this and counters, with Sylla noticing that Ondoa is out of position and attempting a long-range lob from 35 yards. The shot goes over the goal, although the keeper could have stopped it if necessary.
It’s impossible to deny: Cameroon has been incredibly miserable thus far.
How can we best characterize Guirassy? Is he a hunter, a sharpshooter, a traditional striker?
Cameroon is improving after 26 minutes, with Ekambi passing to Magri who then sends in a cross that narrowly misses Moukoudi.
In the first 25 minutes, Cameroon has not been as intimidating as Nigeria was against Equatorial Guinea yesterday. This is not a high standard to meet, and they are far from reaching it.
Yongwa attempted a pass down the side, but Diakhaby, the centre-back for Valencia, reacted quickly to clear the ball. He has had a strong performance so far in the game.
After 21 minutes, Magri approaches Kamano from the side, causing him to fall while taking possession of the ball. As a result, Magri receives a booking, but I thought it was a bit excessive.
Our scout for the Bundesliga has returned after 21 minutes. Kári Tulinius states, “It’s difficult for me, as a fan of Stuttgart, to separate my strong desire for Guirassy to live up to his potential from my unbiased assessment of his skills.” Tulinius continues, “He was already an impressive loan player last season, and I was surprised that Stuttgart was able to purchase him for only nine million Euros. I didn’t expect him to score a goal per game, but he seemed capable of scoring at least twenty goals in a season. I’m unsure of how he would perform at Manchester United, given their current turmoil, but he would likely fit in well at West Ham. Of course, I am hoping he will remain in Stuttgart.”
20 min And from earlier…
After 18 minutes, Casteletto successfully tackles Camara in a major clash, causing Camara to injure himself while committing a foul. N’Kodou attempts a free-kick, but misses the mark by aiming too far behind the goal post, possibly expecting Vincent Janssen to be in that area.
In 1990-91, @FFraserP tweeted that they spent a brief period of time living in Cameroon and it was their first experience with AFCON. They have been a fan ever since.
Tell us more!
15 min It’s nothing new, but it’s nice to see Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Clinton N’Jie playing together again. If Cameroon perform badly and Song loses his job, Mauricio Pochettino might soo be seeking a new one.
After 13 minutes, Cameroon returns to the game. N’Koudou shifts to the right and delivers an excellent cross that finds Anguissa, but his header misses the goal. He’s had a better five-minute stretch!
In just 11 minutes, Cameroon protests the goal, alleging some type of foul, but the referee does not agree and is correct in doing so.
Bayo takes a shot from the left side of the box, which is saved by Ondoa. Moukoudi’s strong tackle prevents disaster on the rebound. However, instead of clearing the ball, Anguissa hesitates just outside his own box. He is then robbed by Camara, causing the ball to roll free. Bayo takes advantage of Ondoa’s legs being spread and scores a surprising first goal! I am loving this!
Joe Pearson replies, “Harrykaned in 9 minutes. Well done! However, that habit makes him a dirty player in my opinion.”
This situation is unusual because no authority has ever explicitly discussed it.
In just 7 minutes, Moriba delivers a good cross that Diakhaby is able to swiftly intercept at the front post. He leans in front of his defender and heads the ball towards goal, but Ondoa makes a comfortable save.
In just 7 minutes, Guinea was awarded a free kick on the right side due to a foul committed by Yongna.
6 min Every time I look at my teamsheet and see the Guinea striker, Bayo, I’ve got Chimo’s classic early-90s, banger going about my heed.
In just 4 minutes, Syalla aggressively charges down the field and sends a forceful, low pass that goes past all players. However, the referee stops play to address an incident where Syalla pushed VYongna’s legs while he was in the air. It is concerning that someone may eventually sustain a serious injury from such actions.
Have you or anyone you know traveled to or lived in Cameroon or Guinea? If yes, please share any interesting stories or observations.
In just 2 minutes, Cameroon quickly moves the ball along the defense, intentionally avoiding any forward passes. It’s almost as if their manager, Rigobert Song, used to play for Gerard Houllier’s Liverpool team.
We’re starting in 1 minute! Let’s get going!
How lovely! Fabrice Ondoa, the goalkeeper for Cameroon, is actually related to André Onana.
I was looking for a “Cousiiiin” from the Bear, but for now let’s make do with this.
It’s time for the national anthem, and the Caermoon boys certainly know how to deliver it. It was a fantastic performance, and their track jackets were also top-notch.
Our teams are focused and ready to go!
I was searching for pictures of fans, but this is even more amazing. Football, wow – what a work of art.
Joe Pearson wrote, “As Ric Ocasek once sang, you’re all I have tonight.” He states that he will not be subscribing to watch football again, as he already has three subscriptions. Therefore, he relies on MBM as his only way to watch Afcon games. There is no pressure on him to do so.
Isn’t it ironic that monopolies are often seen as harmful to consumers, yet in the case of televised sports, they are beneficial? Unfortunately, we are often subjected to monopolies in this industry. However, it may be worth checking if the game can be streamed, as it is possible in the UK.
Since we are already here, here is this week’s episode of Football Daily discussing the unfortunate events at Reading.
“According to Kári Tulinius, Guinea may struggle against Cameroon without Guirassy due to his injury. However, Tulinius admits his bias as a fan of Stuttgart and recognizes that the team is not as strong without him. The absence of two defensive midfielders, Touré and Diawara, also adds to Guinea’s challenges.”
I am pleased that you have brought up this topic. I have not witnessed Giurassy score over 90, but I am skeptical of his sudden surge in his late 20s. Is he truly skilled or simply on a hot streak?
The reigning champions of the triple league currently face 115 charges without a set timeline for their resolution. This is just another typical day for the Premier League – known as the greatest league in the world.TM.
Also going on:
I didn’t pay enough attention to Onana’s shoes amidst all the commotion, but they are definitely worth noting. It’s possible that he wore them during Manchester United’s Champions League matches, which could offer some explanations.
Unfortunately, André Onana is currently present at the ground, but unable to participate in the game due to an unexpected change in his flight route. Due to bad weather conditions, he ended up landing in Abidjan instead of Yamoussoukro.
More importantly, though, into what shop can one go and request an outfit that looks exactly like Accra’s Sky Bar?
Both teams are missing key players: Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar is unavailable and Guinea’s Serhou Guirassy is out due to an injury sustained during a warm-up match against Nigeria.
Cameroon (4-3-3-): Ondoa; Castelletto, Wooh, Moukoudi, Yongwa; Ntcham, Kemen, Anguissa; Magri, Toko Ekambi, N’Koudou. Subs: Ngamaleu, Tolo, Njié, Ateba, Tchamedeu, Gonzalez, Epassy, Neyou, Moumbagna, Elliott, Ngapandouetnbu, Tchato.
Guinea (4-2-3-1): Koné; Conte A, Jeanvier, Diakhaby, Sylla S; Moriba, Konaté; Guilavogui, Camara A, Kamano; Bayo. Subs: Keita, Sylla I, Sow, Keita, Diakité, Camara MA, Cissé K, Cissé S, Camara M, Kanté, Conte F.
Currently leading the group, Senegal, the reigning champions, achieved a 3-0 victory over the 10 players of Gambia.
The beginning of Afcon has been filled with excitement, surprises, and late scoring. Nigeria was tied by Equatorial Guinea, Ghana was defeated by Cape Verde, and Egypt was saved from a loss by a last-minute penalty against Mozambique. In summary, yesterday was eventful.
Today has been relatively uneventful so far, with Senegal easily defeating Gambia in the first Group C game. However, Cameroon, who were champions in 2017 and came in third place in 2021, are not as strong as they used to be. Bryan Mbuemo is injured and Eric Choupo-Moting was not included in the team. Despite this, they still have André-Frank Zambo Anguissa providing support for top scorers from the previous tournament, Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko Ekambi. Therefore, they may be optimistic about their performance this afternoon.
Guinea, led by Kaba Diawara who was a popular player in the late 90s, has Serhou Guirassy on their team. Guirassy’s career has recently taken off, with 17 goals in 14 Bundesliga games this season. Though he may not play in today’s game, Guinea has Naby Keita and Ilaix Moriba who can assist him in causing trouble for stronger opponents in their next two games.
This should be another enjoyable game, especially for those on the GMT time zone looking to relax after work. What could be better than that?
Kick-off: 5pm GMT
