    CAMEROON REMAIN ON TOP:
    Ngamaleu with a good run and a low cross, he wants a corner but its a goal kick. Cameroon have certainly been freescoring for the most part in this Afcon due to their wide men.

    DEFENSIVE CONFUSION:

    It could be argued that triple substitution for Gambia confused matters into positioning, allowing the Lions space to score their second.
