They overturned a one goal deficit in the away leg to beat Kampala FC 3-0 yesterday in Douala and clinch a 16th final berth in the Africa champions’ league.
Cosmos of Bafia created sensation by overturning a one goal deficit to beat visiting Kampala FC 3-0 in the return leg of the preliminary round of the African champions’ league yesterday at the Reunification stadium in Douala and thereby qualify for the round of 16. In the away leg a fortnight ago in Kampala, Cosmos suffered a 0-1 defeat raising fears of a premature exit in their maiden participation at the prestigious African Champions league. However, Cosmos who have been waning since the beginning of the national championship, metamorphosed to wallop their opponent and qualify for the 16th finals.
There will therefore be two Cameroonians teams at the round of 16 of the African championships league as Cosmos would join Coton Sport who was exempted from the preliminary round of the competition due to their track record. On the contrary, there will be no Cameroonian representative at the round of 16 of the African confederations Cup as the two Cameroonians ambassadors engaged in the contention were butted out at the preliminary round. After conceding a zero-to one defeat in the away leg, Panthere of Nde who are no new comers to the continental scene were again humbled 0-1 in Kagali yesterday by local side, Rayons Sport of Rwanda.
Unisport on the other hand, raised hopes when they beat Olympique of Ngor in the away leg 1-0 and therefore needed just a draw to sail through to the round of 16. But yesterday Olympique Ngor trounced Unisport 3-1 to turn the table and qualify 3-2 on aggregate scores. The only other possibility of having a Cameroonian club in the confederations cup will be the drop out from the group stage of the African champions’ league, something we don’t like to happen to any of the Cameroonian representatives in the competition.
