Cameroon beat Gambia 2-0 for AFCON quarter finals

Karl Toko Ekambi scored two second-half goals as hosts Cameroon beat The Gambia to move into the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Toko Ekambi pushes his country ahead in the 50th minute, glancing in from Collins Fai’s right-wing cross.

It became 2-0 seven minutes later with Toko Ekambi finishing at the back post following Martin Hongla’s low delivery.

According to BBC, Cameroon will play either Egypt or Morocco in the semi-final on Thursday, with the final next Sunday.

The Gambia were competing in the tournament for the first time and beat Mauritania and Tunisia in the group phase to reach the knockout stages, before eliminating Guinea in the last 16.

His fifth came shortly afterwards, when he got on the end of Hongla’s inviting cross.

French-born striker, Toko Ekambi now has five goals at the tournament, one behind Cameroon captain Vincent Aboubakar.
