Cameroon And Congo In Stalemate

Cameroon ended DR Congo's hopes of reaching the 2014 FIFA World Cup as they played out a 0-0 draw on Sunday.

The game got off to a slow start with both sides settling in the game but it was Congo who looked the more threatening of the two sides in the opening stages.

Dieumerci Mbokani and Yves Diva were particularly dangerous and went close to breaking the deadlock for the Leopards in the first period.

The Indomitable Lions responded through Vincent Aboubakar who failed to net a brilliant chance for the visitors, ensuring that the game went into the break locked at 0-0.

The battle was tough and chances were difficult to come by for both the Leopards and Cameroon. The visitors then suffered a blow when Aboubakar came off injured and was replaced by Yannnick Ndjeng.

The second-half would follow a similar trend as the few chances that were created were wasted. Congo grew increasingly desperate as the game came to a close but they failed to find a late winner.

The result means Cameroon will head into their match with Libya needing a victory to keep their hopes of progressing alive.
