The Intermediate Indomitable Lions of Cameroon have failed to advance to the quarter-final of the 2022 TotalEnergies African Nations Championship (CHAN) after a 0-1 defeat against the Mena of Niger in their final Group E game this Tuesday at the Miloud Hadefi stadium in Oran, Algeria.
Coach Saidou Alioum’s team was completely blunt against their Niger counterparts as they failed to hit the target over the 90 minutes of the contest despite creating a number of half chances.
Ousseini Badamassi scored Niger’s lone goal on the night in the 70th minute when he picked the bottom corner of Marcelin Mbahbi’s net from a free-kick won after Junior Sime brought him down on the edge of the box.
