Despite being stripped of the tournament’s hosting rights, the Indomitable Lions booked their place in Egypt with a crucial win in Yaounde
Eric Choupo-Moting, Christian Bassogog and Clinton Njie found the back of the net as Cameroon thrashed Comoros in their final qualifying match for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Saturday’s victory secured the Indomitable Lions’ place in Egypt as they will be looking to retain the continental title they won in Gabon two years ago.
Choupo-Moting sent fans at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo into ecstasy after breaking the deadlock with his effort in 36th minute.
The PSG star who clocked 30 on Saturday finished off a collective team effort with a tap-in before goals from Bassogog and Nije in the 53rd and 89th minutes sent Clarence Seedorf’s charges to the Afcon finals scheduled for June.
Cameroon ended their qualifying campaign as the second best team in Group B behind Morocco with 11 points from six games.
