Cameroon to represent Africa in Confederations cup

Cameroon players in a jubilant mood after AFCON triumph

Cameroon will represent Africa in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup competition in Russia.

The tournament which begins from June 17 to July 2 will see the African champions face Germany and Chile as they make their second appearance in the competition.

The Cameroonians overturned a 1-0 El Neny’s goal to beat Egypt 2-1 to lift their fifth AFCON trophy in Gabon.

The Indomitable Lions are housed in Group B with Germany, Chile and Australia.

European champion Portugal will face hosts Russia in Group A, along with Mexico and New Zealand.

Russia will play New Zealand in the opening game in St. Petersburg.

Cameroon took part in the the Confederations Cup in 2003 and played a semi-final against Colombia that witnessed one of the poignant incidents in the country’s footballing history when Marc-Vivien Foe died on the pitch due to a heart failure.
