MATCH REPORT
What a beautiful, mad, spellbinding game that was. Commiserations to Comoros, who have gone down in AFCON folklore this evening.
Cameroon progress but 10-man Comoros win hearts as left-back stars in goal
End of 2nd Half
FT
FULL TIME - CAMEROON 2-1 COMOROS
Comoros continue to give as good as they get right up until the final whistle, but Cameroon hold on for the win. They will now face Gambia in the quarter-finals, though their opponents deserve to return home as national heroes.

MATTOIR BOOKED
Comoros won't go quietly, but they need to calm it down a bit lest they end up down to nine men here.

YELLOW CARD FOR BACHIROU
... seemingly for dissent. Bamlak Tessema Weyesa has been a seriously no-nonsense referee this evening.

GOOD SAVE FROM ONANA!

COMOROS STILL FIGHTING
Mohamed Youssouf gets forwards and blasts a shot high and wide. Despite everything, or perhaps because of it, Comoros have been great tonight.

NJIE GOES CLOSE
A decent passing move from Cameroon ends with Njie fizzing a shot just wide of the post.

NO GOAL!
Toko Ekambi gets in behind and squares for Aboubakar, who smashes one in off the underside of the crossbar. Unfortunately for him, his teammate strayed offside in the build-up and the goal is chalked off.

CAMEROON STRUGGLING IN ATTACK
... with Comoros' massed defence executing a lionhearted rearguard action. Nouhou gets down the left, but is dispossessed by an inch-perfect tackle from Mohamed Youssouf.

COMOROS GO IN SEARCH OF A GOAL
... with Benjaloud Youssouf latching onto a long ball into the box, only to produce a heavy first touch which allows Onana to intervene. He breaks forwards again a moment later, but drags a weak shot across the face of goal. Comoros look to build some momentum, making their first change of the match. Mogni comes off for Abdallah Ali Mohamed.
