Cameroon through to Africa Cup of Nations 2017 semi-finals

Cameroon knocked the favorites Senegal out of the Africa Cup of Nations with a penalty shootout victory to book their place in the semi-finals.

After a goalless 120 minutes at the Stade de Franceville, Sadio Mané proved the fall guy and the Cameroon goalkeeper Joseph Ondoa the hero as he saved the Liverpool winger’s spot-kick.

In scenes reminiscent of Cameroon’s 2002 final victory in this tournament over the same opponents, Vincent Aboubakar then made no mistake with his penalty to seal the deal 5-4.

The four-times champions Senegal made the running from the outset but exited with nothing to show, while Cameroon go on to face DR Congo or Ghana next.
