In a gripping showdown at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium during the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023, Guinea and Cameroon battled to a 1-1 draw in their second Group C encounter.

The early moments saw Guinea’s Mohamed Bayo capitalizing on ample space, seizing a loose ball inside the penalty box to secure a lead against the five-time champions, Cameroon, leaving goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa helpless.

However, Guinea faced a setback as captain Francois Kamano received a red card in added time of the first half for a foul on Cameroonian midfielder Olivier Ntcham. The Video Assistant Referee reviewed the incident, prompting Referee Mutaz Ibrahim to alter the initial yellow card to a red.

Cameroon exploited the numerical advantage in the second half, with the Indomitable Lions equalizing six minutes into the period. Frank Magri showcased remarkable aerial ability, connecting with a free kick to level the score at 1-1.
