CHAN 2020: Cameroon Wins Opening Match, defeat Zimbabwe 1-0



By Sampson Adedeji

Host Cameroon started its campaign in the 2020 Championship of African Nations ( CHAN) on a bright note as they recorded a narrow win against hard fighting Warrior of Zimbabwe, reports.

Expectedly Indomitable Lions dominated the game from the blast of the whistle but were unable to breakdown well organised backline of the Zimbabwean.

Cameroonian skipper Jaque Zoua almost opened the scoring but Warrior goalkeeper Sibanda was up to the task.

The domination of host finally paid off in the 72nd minute, a well struck free kick by Andoulo and concluded with an acrobatic kickback by the defender Charles Banga to secure a 1-0 win.

Zimbabwe players and technical bench complained about the goal but the centre referee allowed the goal to stand.
