VIDEO: Celtic’s N’Guemo leveller leads Cameroon into quarters past Tunisia; Zambia beat Gabon to progress

Cameroon 2 – Tunisia 2 (African Cup of Nations, January 21, 2010) The winner-takes-all contest between Cameroon and Tunisia had a lightning start for the north Africans inside a minute, the Indomitable Lions fell asleep down their left hand side before striker Amine Chermiti darted in front of defender Nkoulou and directed a header into the net from seven yards. Amazingly Cameroon scored with the opening 60 seconds of the second half the equalise, Samuel Eto’o converted a cross from Webo after he had just been introduced at the break. The match then exploded in the 63rd minute, starting with a bizarre own goal from Cameroon defender Aurelien Chedjou who sent a header over his keeper when trying to cut out a cross. But within a minute Cameroon equalised through Celtic’s Landry N’Guemo who smashed a low shot into the near post.

Zambia 2 – Gabon 1 (African Cup of Nations, January 21, 2010) Zambia broke the deadlock with Gabon in the 29th minute when Rainford Kalaba gently flicked a shot past the goalie to put the Copper Bullets in touching distance of the quarters. Gabon were starring down the barrel in the 62nd minute when Zambia forward James Chamanga doubled the lead with a fierce low drive. Fabrice Do Marcolino reduced the deficit for Gabon but they failed to find the equaliser and exited the competition.
