Togo Stun Cameroon

Cameroon struggled to find their best form as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Togo in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Lome on Sunday.

The Sparrow Hawks were without first-choice goalkeeper Kossi Agassa as well as influential captain Emmanuel Adebayor, but were able to secure their first win in qualifying.

Komlan Amewou and Atakora Lalawele were the stars on the day and took advantage of a defensive approach to the game from the Indomitable Lions.

New Cameroon coach Volker Finke decided to throw in defensive midfielders Joel Matip, Alexandre Song, Enoh Eyong and Jean II Makoun as well as four defenders. The decision meant most of the attacking intent came from Yannick Ndjeng and Vincent Aboubakar.

Togo, though, started well and would hit the front just past the half-hour mark when Amewou got onto the end of a set-piece to fire home.

Attackers Leonard Kweuke and Jacques Zoua were introduced for Cameroon at the break but Togo remained the more dangerous side and Lalawele extended their advantage with 20 minutes to go.

The result opened up the group as Libya and Cameroon are just two points ahead of fourth-placed Togo with two games to go.
