Despite his impressive performance, Foncha Street FC suffered a 1-3 defeat against the host.
Known for his ability to create set piece opportunities for his team, he demonstrated his skill and flair in the match against Aigle Royale du Moungo, as he won two free kicks in dangerous positions. However, his teammates failed to capitalize on his efforts, as they wasted both chances.
Gibel also showed his pace and strength, as he made several runs behind the defense and held off the challenges from the opponents. He had a couple of shots on target, but none of them were powerful enough to beat the goalkeeper.
His debut in Cameroon’s second flight competition was highly praised by assistant coach Akosemoh Theodore, who believes he will do better with hard work.
