In a nail-biting encounter, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon triumphed over Gambia with a 3-2 win in their final group C game of the AFCON 2023.
Karl Toko Ekambi propelled Cameroon into the lead in the 56th minute, connecting flawlessly with Georges-Kevin N’Koudou’s cross to score a decisive header. Gambia swiftly responded, as Ablie Jallow found the net with a skillful shot into the bottom right corner after capitalizing on a well-placed cross.
The momentum swung in Gambia’s favor when Ebrima Colley, assisted by Assan Ceesay’s pinpoint pass, calmly slotted the ball into the net, giving the Scorpions a brief lead.
