Cameroon: Will feature at World Cup

Cameroon sealed a place at next summer's World Cup after a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tunisia in Yaounde.

Pierre Webo, whose extraordinary point-blank miss was chiefly responsible for

the first leg ending goalless, scored early on this time and Benjamin Moukandjo added a second before the break.

Half-time substitute Ahmed Akaichi took less than five minutes to make an

impact, pulling a goal back, but Jean Makoun's double sealed the Indomitable

Lions' place in Brazil.

The opener came just three minutes in when Webo dispossessed defender Karim Haggui and produced a neat low left-footed finish across keeper Moez Ben Cherifia and in off the far post.

Cameroon dominated the early stages and Benoit Assou-Ekotto's long-range shot took a deflection and an awkward bounce in front of Ben Cherifia, but he dealt with the ball.

But Moukandjo made it 2-0 in the 31st minute when he dribbled through three

Tunisian defenders and fired low inside the near post. His exuberant celebrations brought him a yellow card but the goal took his side a big step

closer to Brazil.

Samuel Eto'o failed to shape a curling effort inside the far post but Tunisia

threatened when Syam Ben Youssouf headed wide from a dangerous set-piece.

And Akaichi cut the deficit when he raced past defender Aurelien Chedjou on to

a bouncing through-ball and lashed a first-time left-footed shot past keeper

Charles Itandje.

He almost made an unwanted contribution at the other end as Makoun's header from a corner deflected off him and just over the crossbar.

But another set-piece took Cameroon clear as Assou-Ekotto's corner was headed home at the near post by the unmarked Makoun.

Moukandjo missed a glorious chance to kill the tie off once and for all when,

one on one with Ben Cherifia, he first side-footed straight at the keeper and

then casually skied the rebound over the bar.

The same player's clumsy touch ended a classy Cameroon break from a Tunisian corner and Makoun failed to play in Eric Choupo-Moting.

But Makoun netted his second, and Cameroon's fourth, when he tapped into an empty net after Choupo-Moting's low shot came back off the post.
