Cameroonian “Remontada” leads it to third place in the African Nations

Burkina Faso advanced with three clean goals to Steve Yago (24), goalkeeper Andre Onana (43 fouls against his country) and Gabriel Ouattara (49), and Cameroon responded with three goals to Stephane Bahoken (71) and Vincent Aboubacar (85 and 87), who tied the game and ruled to the penalty shootout, which She smiled after Onana made amends by blocking Ibrahim Plati Toure’s kick.

Cameroon repeated its achievement at home in 1972 when it finished third by defeating Zaire 5-2, and won the consolation match for the second time in its history.

Cameroon, whose dream of reaching the final evaporated and continuing their quest to win the sixth title in its history by exiting the semi-finals at the hands of Egypt on penalties, achieved a moral victory before their decisive confrontations against Algeria at the end of next March in the qualifying play-off for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

On the other hand, Burkina Faso failed to rehabilitate its 1-2 loss against Cameroon in the opening match of the tournament, and came fourth for the second time in its history after the first at home in 1998 when it lost to the Democratic Republic of the Congo 1-4 on penalties after a 4-4 draw.
