I am watching this and the commentator is very annoying with his guess on an injury sustained by A Cameroon player. The guy clearly has his knee wrapped up and the commentator calling it a muscle injury after guessing that there was no major injury. Rubbish. The likely thing here is there is some injury to the ligament.

Same scenario in Cameroon's last home game v Zambia. I understand it has something to do with the current political situation in the country but I cannot say for sure.

Cameroon will be tough but the good thing is they must attack us and that will leave them exposed.

Not only empty stadium, but the quality of the game is low, to me. Maybe it's me who is wrong.

Two substitutions, one for each team, before halftime.

I got put off by the two sides using the same colors. Morocco should be wearing something different!

Morocco just made a change in the 37th min, but the player looks ok.

By the way, just when I was going to say what "kind of game" is this, Cameroon scored their goal. However, the game is still not what I had expected - quality wise.

Fellows, please I need help with this question. These AFCON qualifiers are for year 2019 and in that year, Cameroon is the HOST nation - right? If so, why is Cameroon playing the AFCON qualifiers?

Poor goal to concede by Morocco; Aboubacar simply out-muscled the defender on a punt from deep...

Cameron is very organized structurally and defensively. That's clear.

They'll be trouble

:lol: :lol:

Serious but it is a new rule by CAF to involve host nations in the qualifications. Cameroon is already qualified, so only one team qualifies from this group.

I just heard the commentator answer my question that CAF changed the rule this year to ensure the host nation prepares for the AFCON tournament. As a result, I am assuming if Cameroon heads the group, the second in the group qualifies instead.

Ok, thanks for answering my question, though the commentators has answered my question from their comments.

Should have been 2-0 for Cameroun..................Aboubakar just missed a good chance.

Cameroon has increased the heat with some impressive play in the last few minutes.

Cameroun just dodged a bullet there ....................2 chances in a min for Morocco.
1-1 at this moment should be the fair result.
