For a while on Wednesday, it seemed like Cameroon would be on the receiving end of one of the greatest upsets in African Cup of Nations – or indeed, football – history.

Minnows Guinea-Bissau had taken a shock lead in the 13th minute, and held onto their lead until the hour mark of the match before Cameroon finally found an equaliser. 17 minutes later, Cameroon defender Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui netted into the bottom corner of the Guinea-Bissau goal with a superbly-taken strike.

The Slavia Prague defender’s goal means Cameroon are in charge of Group A, after tournament hosts Gabon spluttered to another draw, against Burkina Faso.

The Indomitable Lions are on top of the group with four points, ahead of Gabon and Burkina Faso on two. Guinea-Bissau, for all their heroics, languish on one point. Cameroon need only a draw in their final group match, against Gabon, to qualify for the quarter-finals.
