AFCON: Cameroon through to semi-finals after 2-0 win over Gambia.

With a 2-0 win over Gambia, hosts Cameroon qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals. Karl Toko Ekambi scored both goals.

Gambia had surprised many by making it past the group stage in their first appearance in the event, before defeating Guinea in the last 16.

On Saturday, though, the nation rated 150 in the world – exactly 100 places below Cameroon – was defeated by two Toko Ekambi goals at Stade Omnisport de Douala.

Cameroon dominated the first half, but a Vincent Aboubakar header only put rival goalkeeper Baboucarr Gaye to the test once.

Toko Ekambi, a forward for Lyon, broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half with a header across Gaye from a Collins Fai ball.

Gambia’s chances of extending their magical run were dashed seven minutes later when Ekambi went in behind to finish Martin Hongla’s close-range cross.

Cameroon will face Egypt or Morocco in the semi-finals on Sunday.
