Dorinel Yondjo Matah Angel has been named best player and officially top scorer of the just-ended 2023 UNIFFAC U17 tournament in Cameroon’s coastal city of Limbe.
The 16-year-old EFBC forward scored three and assisted two of Cameroon’s goals in the tournament, inspiring his nation to success in his first tournament.
Matah lived up to his long standing goal scoring reputation as he scored twice in the opening game against CAR and got a late goal in the 2-0 win against Congo Republic.
That win guaranteed Cameroon’s place amongst the top two in the tournament, and automatically earned a spot in the next TotalEnergies U17 AFCON.
Dorinel’s five goals contribution in the tournament Cameroon only scored six goals made it an obvious decision for him to win both the top scorer and player of the tournament awards.
It is not the first time he wins such awards. He has made it a habit during U14 , U16 and recently in the U18 tournaments organized by EFBC.
Cameroon and Congo will complete the 12 teams to compete in the expanded event U17 tournament in two months.
Cameroon are the defending champions of the competition. They won the competition in Tanzania back in 2019.
Hosts Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Senegal , Mali, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, and Zambia have secured their tickets for the event.
The TotalEnergies U17 AFCON 2023 will run from the 29th of April to 19th of May 2023, in Algeria and Dorinel is expected to be Cameroon’s poster boy at the tournament.
